Sixers trade for Teague

PHILADELPHIA - The Sixers have traded guard Casper Ware to the Brooklyn Nets for point guard Marquis Teague and a 2019 second-round draft pick.

Teague came to the Nets from the Chicago Bulls on January 21, 2014. He was originally selected out of Kentucky in the first round (29th overall) of the 2012 NBA Draft by Chicago.

Teague appeared in 40 games for the Bulls and the Nets last season, averaging 2.7 points, 1.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 11.1 minutes per game. In 88 career games, Teague holds NBA averages of 2.3 points and 1.4 assists per game.

Ware appeared in nine games for Philadelphia last season, where he averaged 5.3 points and 1.1 assists in 12.9 minutes per game. He is expected to be released by the Nets.

The pick the Sixers receive will be the more favorable of Milwaukee's or Sacramento's second-round selection in 2019.
