Jeff Teague

Jeff Teague's rookie year was not particularly good. There was the occasional spark on the fire, but he never threw a log on it. Teague showed he did not have an outside jumpshot, was often overly tentative offensively, passing up good shots and taking bad ones. On the plus side, Teague was OK defensively and didn't turn it over a lot, and if you want to be really positive, then the firing of Mike Woodson might prove very important to Teague's development. With a playbook that expands beyond watching someone else isolate and waiting for a kickout, Teague might start to show more.

   The NBA's middle class: where fringe stars now hang out

[...] In comparison, 36 such players have signed within those parameters in 2013. And in contrast to 2008, those names are often established quality role players who aren't quite stars and who rightly aren't being paid like it. At the top end, players like Monta Ellis, Jose Calderon, Brandon Jennings, Jarrett Jack, Jeff Teague and Carl Landry are all getting acceptable prices, perhaps $2 million annually less than they would have done five years ago. At the bottom end, established role players like Marreese Speights, Tony Allen and Chris Kaman are getting paid adequately for their useful role player production. And unlike in 2008, those deals like Kaman's are not too long. See also Greg Stiemsma, Tyler Hansbrough, Mike Dunleavy Jr, Dorell Wright and Randy Foye, none more than three years in length, some as short as one.

The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
