The Atlanta Hawks are currently the No. 3 team in the Eastern Conference standing and are in the position to try and separate themselves from the logjam in the middle of the playoff table. That lends itself to the notion that the Hawks might be interested in shaking things up before the Feb. 18 NBA Trade Deadline and it seems like point guard Jeff Teague might be the player on the move.

The Hawks have reportedly been taking offers for both of their point guards in Jeff Teague and Dennis Schroder recently, but most of those conversations have been about Teague as of late, per Chris Mannix of Yahoo! Sports:

Moreover, Mannix and Adrian Wojnarowski on The Vertical podcast discussed why the Hawks would be willing to move their starting point guard in Teague. That part of the equation can be boiled down to the fact that Atlanta head coach Mike Budenholzer hascome to the conclusion that Schroder can be the guy in the backcourt for the Hawks.

Despite what Teague has done for the franchise over the course of his career, Schroder has been far more effective for the Hawks through the first 46 games of the 2015-16 season. Atlanta's net differential has been a paltry -2.2 points per 100 possessions with Teague on the floor this season while they've been running away with things when Schroder has been on the floor, posting a net differential of 10.8 points per 100 possessions (per NBA.com).

The question now would be what the Hawks would want in return for an established guard such as Teague. He's on a manageable contract that pays him $8 million per year and will expire after next season. However, the question would be if they would be looking to get picks or look to add depth somewhere on their roster, perhaps at the power forward position behind Mike Scott or even on the wing to further add depth at the two-guard.

Regardless, the Hawks are shopping Jeff Teague right now and there are plenty of teams around the league that could be in the market for a player of his talents. Now we'll just see if the right deal comes on the table and if Atlanta actually pulls the trigger on a deal to move the point guard.
