He shoots better, fouls less, he's bigger, he's a year younger, literally better in every way. And he signed for 2 mil in GS. Jeff Teague is not a good basketball player and it's not like he has some upside that hasn't been developed yet. But hey, he's been on trash teams the last five years, maybe the scouts see something in him that I don't.
And Tristan Thompson is a pure regular season rotational big to soak up some minutes. Nothing to care about as long as they don't delude themselves into playing him in the playoffs. I mean, he got way too much money and Nerlens Noel is 1000000x better, but whatever.
Nerlens is a trainwreck as a person apparently, do not want in the locker room.
Tristan isn't great, and IMO in a normal center market he gets $11-12 mil, but he's playable in the playoffs against teams with small ball 5s.
Jeff Teague isn't that good, but I think Wanamaker wouldn't take the minimum this time and we didn't want to offer him the BAE
