Eligible for a rookie extension this summer, Schroder will be a restricted free agent next summer, giving Atlanta the ability to control the free-agency process. Teague, 27, has shown the ability to run the team, but his future is unclear. Teague is still in his prime but is entering the last year of a $32 million contract he signed in 2013. With Teague’s salary ($8 million in 2016-17) likely to double in 2017-18 and Schroder commanding starter money, the situation needs to be addressed sooner rather than later.
Storyline: Dennis Schroeder Trade?

There are officials from other teams in the league that believe the Hawks can’t go into next season with the same setup of Teague starting and Schroder coming off the bench. However, it does remain an option. Hawks president of basketball operations and head coach Mike Budenholzer and general manager Wes Wilcox will likely have many conversations in the next few months on the issue.
Storyline: Dennis Schroeder Trade?
If Budenholzer decides to promote Schroder, do the Hawks opt to trade Teague in an effort to improve their roster in another area? “We value both Jeff and Dennis,” Budenholzer said when asked if he is ready to hand the keys to the offense to Schroder. “They have both been incredibly good for us. Part of the reason we have had success is we have had two really good point guards. I am not ready to say anything other than how much we love them both. They are a big part of why we have been successful.”
