The Minnesota Timberwolves will sign point guard Jeff Teague to a three-year deal worth $57 million according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Teague played one season with the Indiana Pacers after spending his seven seasons with the Atlanta Hawks.

A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that the Golden State Warriors have agreed to a three-year, $24 million deal with backup guard Shaun Livingston.

Last season, Teague averaged 15.3 points per game and a career-high 7.8 assists.

The Timberwolves had to find a starting floor general after sending Ricky Rubio to Utah in exchange for a first-round pick Friday afternoon.

Now, though, they don't have to worry abut getting into a bidding war with Rubio under contract for the foreseeable future. The Bulls bought out Rondo for $3 million Friday rather than exercise a $13.4 million option for next season.

Rubio averaged 11.1 points. Not bad after originally projected to pick in the top 10 of the 2017 NBA Draft.

Rubio did a solid job for the Timberwolves in his six seasons with the team as he averaged 8.5 assists and 2.1 steals per game, but the front office thought it was time to go in a different direction.
