Memphis Grizzlies General Manager Chris Wallace today announced the team signed guard Marquis Teague to a 10-day contract as a Call-Up from the NBA G League’s Memphis Hustle. Teague becomes the first GATORADE Call-Up in Hustle franchise history.

He has led the Hustle in total points, total assists and free throws made and attempted during the team’s inaugural season in the G League.

Ask his teammates, and they marvel at Gobert’s incomparable length that seems to cover the entire paint. Ask Derrick Favors, and he’ll admit he often thinks, “Rudy just saved my ass,” during games. Ask Jazz head coach Quinn Snyder, and he’ll give a 90-second case for Gobert as Defensive Player of the Year. “Objectively, Rudy’s the guy,” Snyder tells SB Nation.
“If you look at efficiency rating, which is empirically what we look at to see how a team’s playing defensively, it’s directly attributable to your wins and losses on the court,” Snyder says. “If he gets 10 blocks, that’s great, but our [defensive] efficiency is 90, then the probability of us winning is probably about 90, too. And that’s Rudy.”
