You can create add a hyperlink to any text, which will allow you to avoid massive links being copied into the chat/channels.
Expand the compose box by clicking the icon “A” with a pencil just below your compose line. Once in the expanded view you can create a link by clicking the icon that looks like a chain at the top of the compose box.
You can also highlight your text and use this function to change your selected text into a hyperlink. Once the hyperlink dialog opens update the link location and modify your text if you so desire.

Warren's suggestion is helpful, but when pasting a link, it should automatically create intelligible text for the sharepoint link. So if I were a member in Busy Team and put an excel file in the financial folder in General, Teams should automatically create the linked text:
Busy Team/General/financial/file.xls (Which would be a link to the horrid sharepoint URL)
Otherwise the links are unwieldy and confusing and no one has a clue where the file actually was saved.
