Following his trade to the Pacers, Ramona Shelburne and Israel Gutierrez both agree that it is a good move for Jeff Teague to live in his parents' basement, but for different reasons. (0:34)

Jeff Teague will make $8.8 million this coming NBA season, but the new Indiana Pacers point guard will not have to spend any of it on a new place to live. The 28-year-old Indianapolis native will be living with his parents next season.

In an interview on Fox Sports 97.5 FM in Indianapolis on Wednesday, the hosts joked that it would be cool if Teague lived back at home and he responded that he is. They asked how long that would last and were surprised when he responded, "the whole year."

The former Atlanta Hawk went on to say, "I bought a home here some years back, and when I re-signed back with Atlanta, I just decided that I was going to live in Atlanta. And I just gave the house to my mom and dad. And now, I sold my house in Atlanta, so I'm moving back. So now I'm gonna live in my old house with my mom and dad."

He won't be staking a claim to a bedroom now that he is playing for the Pacers. He says he'll be living in the basement.

Things are not all bad for the point guard. He says hasn't had a curfew since he was 18 and won't have to cut the grass. His dad takes care of that.
