ATLANTA (AP) - The Atlanta Hawks, facing a decision with restricted free agent Jeff Teague, signed first-round draft pick and point guard Dennis Schroder from Germany on Thursday.
The Hawks confirmed that Teague has signed a four-year, $32 million offer sheet with Milwaukee, where he would be reunited with former Atlanta coach Larry Drew. The Hawks have three days to match the offer.
General manager Danny Ferry said the team is considering its decision with Teague.
``As we have consistently said, we value Jeff,'' Ferry said. ``We are in the process of putting together what we believe is a strong foundation for this team and will make the best decision moving forward for our organization.''
Teague, a four-year veteran and two-year starter, set career highs with his averages of 14.6 points and 7.2 assists last season.
Guard Lou Williams, recovering from a knee injury, could be the only returning member of a three-man rotation at point guard that also included Teague and Devin Harris, a free agent. Two of the three were often on the court together.
Schroder, 19, has played professionally in Germany since 2009-10. He will participate in the Hawks' Summer League
Schroder, selected No. 17 overall, was the second of two first-round picks for Atlanta. Lucas Nogueira, a 7-foot center from Brazil, was the No. 16 pick and remains unsigned.
The Hawks say Schroder asked his name be changed from the English spelling Schroeder, as it was announced at the draft.
The Hawks on Wednesday signed Utah free agent forward Paul Millsap to a two-year, $19 million contract. Millsap will replace forward Josh Smith, who signed with Detroit. The Hawks also re-signed small forward Kyle Korver.
Meanwhile, Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer completed his staff by naming Taylor Jenkins as an assistant. Jenkins most recently coached the Austin Toros of the NBA Development League.
Jenkins worked with Budenholzer, the former San Antonio assistant coach, last year when he served as an assistant on the Spurs' summer league team.
Budenholzer said Jenkins is a ``talented, hard-working coach who has a great grasp of the system that we are going to implement.''
Jenkins interned with the Spurs basketball operations department during the 2007-08 season.
