2012 NBA Draft Results: Marquis Teague Selected By Bulls With No. 29 Pick

With the No. 29 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, the Chicago Bulls selected Marquis Teague from Kentucky. He is the fourth Wildcat taken in the first round, following Anthony Davis (No. 1), Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (No. 2) and Terrence Jones (No. 18).

Teague will serve as Derrick Rose insurance as the former MVP will miss time this season due to knee surgery. Teague, the brother of Hawks guard Jeff Teague, will slide in with C.J. Watson to cover the point guard spot, assuming the Bulls don't spend money to add a backcourt player to keep Rose's seat warm.

Teague won the national championship and, like Rose, played under John Calipari. Unlike Rose back in Memphis, Teague wasn't the featured scorer for Kentucky.
