The Milwaukee Bucks have been mulling over the option of extending a qualifying offer to Atlanta Hawks guard Jeff Teague for a few days now and it appears they’ve decided on a decision.
According to Marc Stein, the Bucks have prepared an offer sheet and will most likely submit it to both the Hawks and Teague’s agent in the very near future.

The Bucks are reportedly more than open to sending either of Brandon Jennings or Monta Ellis to Atlanta in exchange for Teague, but that of course would require one of the said players to agree as well as the Hawks.
Meanwhile, the Hawks have reportedly balked at offering Ellis or Jennings a large deal, despite showing interest in both.
If a trade is to happen, it would most likely require either Ellis or Jennings to drop their salary demands.
The Dallas Mavericks and Sacramento Kings also still reportedly remain in play for Ellis’ services.
