Heading into NBA free agency this offseason, Jeff Teague has made it clear that all he wants to do is contribute towards winning. Speaking to Michael Scotto of HoopsHype, Teague remarked:

"Honestly, I just want to go to a team where we’re playing to win. I want to win...all I know is winning, competing, and trying to get to that ultimate goal of a championship. That’s what I want to play for is to win. If that’s starting or coming off the bench, I just want to play a significant role in winning. That’s really it for me."

It's no surprise that the Miami Heat want to contend for the title again after their surprising NBA Finals run. However, they also want to maintain cap space for targeting stars in NBA free agency in 2021. As reported by Five Reasons Sports, the Heat are looking to split their mid-level exception (MLE) to acquire two veterans.

Paul Millsap and Wes Matthews played for the Denver Nuggets and Milwaukee Bucks respectively last season. While Millsap should be available and would find minutes at the power forward spot with Miami Heat, Matthews is a bit of a surprise.

Firstly, it's expected that Milwaukee will quickly re-sign Matthews when NBA free agency opens. Secondly, the Miami Heat already have several catch-and-shoot options on their roster. We'll have to wait and see how this saga unfolds.
