Pacers, Jazz swap point guards while Hawks get No. 12 pick

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – The Indiana Pacers have traded one Indianapolis native for another Wednesday – sending George Hill to Utah and acquiring Jeff Teague in a three-team swap that also includes Atlanta.

While the deal cannot be announced officially, Hill’s agent, Bill Neff, confirmed the details.

Atlanta receives the No. 12 overall pick in Thursday night’s draft.

In Teague, Indiana gets the true point guard it has long wanted. Hill adds defense and depth to a spot that could be in flux for the Jazz if point guard Dante Exum comes back slower than from a torn ACL that cost him the entire 2015-16 season.

Hill and Teague both have one year left on their current deals and each is scheduled to make $8 million this season.
