The Bulls have officially traded G Marquis Teague to the Nets.
The trade was finalized on Tuesday and included F Toko Shengelia being sent to the Bulls. Teague had found himself buried on the Bulls bench in between D-League stints, so this trade represents a fresh start for the rookie. He still has minimal fantasy value, however, as he'll be stuck as the Nets third-string point guard behind Deron Williams and Shaun Livingston. Jan 21 - 12:14 PM

The Bulls have agreed to trade PG Marquis Teague to the Nets in exchange for F Toko Shengelia, according to Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The deal isn't expected to be finalized until next week and it won't alter any fantasy values. Teague will take over the Nets' third-string PG spot vacated by Tyshawn Taylor (traded to the Pelicans), while Shengelia will scrap for reserve minutes in Chicago.

The Bulls have recalled Marquis Teague from the D-League.

Teague has been balling with the Iowa Energy since late December and has averaged 12 points and 4.8 assists in his eight games with the team. "We don’t look at it as a demotion," coach Tom Thibodeau said. "Marquis has had some good moments too. He’s still very young." There is a chance Teague could still provide some fantasy value if Kirk Hinrich is traded, but he's better served being left on waivers wires for the time being.

Marquis Teague has been assigned to the Iowa Energy of the D-League.

Despite the lack of options in the post-Derrick Rose Chicago backcourt, Teague player has been unable to establish himself as a rotation player for the Bulls. He found himself limited to 10.8 minutes over the Bulls last five games and hasn't topped 10 points or six assists all season. Any hopes fantasy owners had of Teague emerging as a decent point guard option should be table until at least next season.

Marquis Teague had a disastrous start in the Bulls' 83-82 loss to the Magic on Monday, playing just 11 minutes with three missed shots to his stat line and that's it.

Teague's confidence is shot and while he may be the only healthy point guard on the roster at the end of the year, we're still not sure if a full-time role would even translate to guaranteed fantasy value in standard formats. Like many players at his young and raw stage of development, the only thing owners can hope for or watch for here is that a light bulb turns on revealing something that cannot be predicted based on past results.

Marquis Teague played 28 minutes in the first start of his career on Saturday, scoring seven points with one board, three assists, two steals, three blocks and one 3-pointer.

He has been a nightmare all year before tonight and shot just 22.4 percent from the field. Kirk Hinrich was out tonight with a back injury and it's unclear how many games he'll miss. Teague has been rumored to be waived or traded over the past couple months, but he might get a chance while Hinrich is out. If you're in a very deep league and need a point guard, he has some short-term value.

Marquis Teague is starting at point guard for the Bulls on Saturday in place of the injured Kirk Hinrich.

He did not play on Friday night, but the Bulls might want to stick him with the first unit since he has at least some familiarity with them. D.J. Augustin played 12 minutes and could wind up getting more playing time. Fantasy owners shouldn't be too excited about adding either.

Bulls PG Marquis Teague scored a season-best 10 points in 17 minutes off the bench on Saturday, making 4-of-8 FGs and both of his FT attempts.

The Kentucky product also had three rebounds and three assists, but hadn't even scored in his previous five games and doesn't warrant fantasy attention.

Updating a previous item, Marquis Teague will not be demoted to the D-League yet.

He is going to be with the Bulls for practice on Wednesday, and will backup Kirk Hinrich. Teague has been a disaster this year and is shooting 16.7 percent from the field with the Bulls. He has no fantasy value.

Marquis Teague has been assigned to the Iowa Energy of the D-League.

Teague had fallen behind Kirk Hinrich and Mike James in the Bulls rotation, so this move is no surprise after his second straight DNP-CD. While this is a short-term step backwards for the second-year guard, Teague should get some valuable minutes under his belt in the D-League that could help him take two steps forward upon his return to the Bulls.

Marquis Teague has fallen behind Mike James in the Bulls' point guard rotation.

Teague was in line to inherit more minutes after Derrick Rose got injured, but has now fallen behind the 38-year-old James on the Bulls' depth chart. After his second straight DNP-CD, Teague seems to have lost the trust of coach Tom Thibodeau, who added, "You're doing what's best for the team." All bets are off if (when?) Kirk Hinrich gets injured, but Teague doesn't have much fantasy value in anything but the deepest of leagues right now.
Tue, Dec 3, 2013 09:51:00 AM

Marquis Teague played just eight minutes on Friday, scoring four points on 1-of-2 shooting with one assist.

Tom Thibodeau does not trust him but he may be forced to if Kirk Hinrich suffers an injury, which isn't exactly a far-fetched idea. It's hard to say when he becomes a viable stash, but something in the 16-24 team range is a start until we see what type of role Thibs intends to give him now that Rose has gone down.

Bulls exercise third-year option on G Marquis Teague.

This is a mild surprise as they were reportedly trying to move him, but he's now locked up through next season.

The Bulls are "none too subtly" shopping PG Marquis Teague, according to Mark Deeks of

The Bulls intend to make Mike James their third-string PG this year, which makes Teague an expendable trade chip. The Jazz jump to mind as a team desperate for PG help, and the Wolves were also reportedly interested but have since 'cooled' after being unimpressed with Teague's play. No matter where he lands, it's hard to envision him as a fantasy asset.

Marquis Teague scored a team-high 25 points against the Blazers on 7-of-14 shooting, while adding three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes during Tuesday's win.

His coach for summer league, Adrian Griffin, said that Teague was a "work in progress," and the second-year guard was up to the challenge. He had the ball in his hands more than any other Bull and he was getting into the lane with ease. Teague won't be seeing much time with the Bulls during the regular season while Derrick Rose is healthy.
