But the emergence of D.J. Augustin, claimed off waivers from Toronto, has made Teague expendable again. Efforts to trade Teague have produced little interest. General manager Gar Forman said earlier this month that Teague would be sporadically assigned to the D-League so he can get game action. Chicago Tribune

The Chicago Bulls announced today the team has assigned guard Marquis Teague to the Iowa Energy of the NBA Development League (D-League). Teague (6-2, 190) has appeared in 19 games (two starts) for the Bulls this season and averaged 2.4 ppg, 1.5 apg and 1.0 rpg in 12.7 mpg. NBA.com

Teague said he remains confident, even if his play has suggested otherwise. "It's not my decision, so all I can do is keep working and always be ready," Marquis Teague said. "It's a long season. A lot of things happen." Chicago Tribune

Either way, in his second season, Teague could be moved in a package if the Bulls start becoming sellers. Four teams were interested in the point guard’ at the end of training camp, especially after Teague shined in the Summer League. The problem is that Hinrich is a free agent after this season, and the organization hoped that Teague would step up. Chicago Sun-Times

The Chicago Bulls announced today the team has exercised its fourth-year option for the 2014-15 season for guard/forward Jimmy Butler, and its third-year option for the 2014-15 season for guard Marquis Teague. By exercising the respective player options, both players will be under contract with the Bulls for the 2014-15 season. NBA.com

The Bulls are ready to move on. Despite a fairly poor 2012/13 season - in fact, a fairly poor last six seasons - the Bulls value the services of Mike James, who they had for a brief period in the 2011/12 season. They want James to be their third string point guard this season, not Marquis Teague, This decision has already been made, hence the edict from management to play Teague more. Teague, none too subtly, is being shopped. Utah are a reported suitor for his services; before that, talks were ongoing with the Minnesota Timberwolves (whose interest later cooled after the 'showcase' that wasn't.) The decision is mostly performance related, as seen above. Financial considerations, however, also play a part. Teague's salary for this season is $1,074,720, whilst James's would be $884,293 - that $190,427 seems negligible, but, when considering the Bulls are due to be in the 150% luxury tax range, the $476,068 it becomes after tax is added is significant enough when talking about third string point guards not likely to figure in the rotation all that much.
