Bulls select Teague with 29th pick in draft

DEERFIELD, Ill. (AP) - The Chicago Bulls selected Marquis Teague with the 29th pick in the draft on Thursday, giving them a point guard possibly to help fill in for the injured Derrick Rose.

Teague, whose older brother Jeff plays for Atlanta, was the fourth Wildcats player drafted, after Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist went to New Orleans and Charlotte at No. 1 and No. 2 and Houston took Terrence Jones at No. 18.

Teague averaged 10.0 points and 4.8 assists while helping Kentucky win a national championship.

The Bulls have also had good luck with guards who played for John Calipari. Rose, who is recovering from major knee surgery and isn't expected back until early next year, played for him at Memphis.
