We have some SharePoint sites on our tenant that were deployed using the SharePoint Admin Centre as standalone sites. This means they don't currently have a Microsoft Teams environment associated with them.

 

Is there a way I can create a new Teams but link it instead to an already existing site/group? Without it creating a brand new group or linked SharePoint site?

Hi @Toby958, I'm not a SharePoint guy but a short google search gave me this link:

How to connect a SharePoint Site to an Office 365 Group - SharePoint Maven

 

And when you linked the SharePoint site to an Office 365, you can create a new Team based on an existing Office 365 group.

 

Here is a short description from SharePoint perspective:
