Teague Living at Home

Like fellow NBA stars Dwyane Wade (Chicago Bulls) and Dwight Howard (Atlanta Hawks), newly acquired Pacers point guard Jeff Teague is going home – but he's taking it a bit further than his companions.

Teague, a 2015 All-Star with the Hawks, was the centerpiece of a three-team trade just before the NBA draft that sent him to his hometown of Indiananapolis and former Pacers point guard George Hill to Utah. On Monday, a local Fox Sports Radio affiliate secured an interview with the new acquisition, talking with him both about his recruitment out of high school and his plans for living at home after spending seven seasons in Atlanta.

And in the radio podcast, Teague revealed that despite entering the final season of a four-year, $32 million contract, the veteran will be living at home with his parents for the entirety of the upcoming season.

Admittedly, it's not quite his childhood home – he purchased this new home early in his pro career, and gave the house to his parents once he decided to live in Atlanta full-time – but it's still certainly different than the stereotypical NBA lifestyle.

"I've sold the house in Atlanta, and now I'm moving back and living in that old house with my mom and dad," he said in the interview, before dropping another piece of humility. "They got the master, I'm just in the basement."

Things aren't all bad for the point guard; he won't have a curfew, and he claimed to have gotten out of chores later in the interview.

As for what happens on the basketball floor, the 27-year-old's new home might bring just as much of an adjustment. Teague, who has averaged north of 15 points in each of the past three seasons, joins fellow new acquisitions Thaddeus Young and Al Jefferson in attempting to help Indiana win a playoff series for the first time since 2014.
