|Chicago Bulls Sign Marquis Teague|
Marquis Teague has become the final first-round draft pick from this year's draft to be signed to a deal. The wait - due to salary cap issues for the Bulls - was signed to a deal by Chicago yesterday. His rookie deal is a three-year deal, which will pay him a reported $857,000 next season.
Teague says it's a relief to get the contract out the way and focus on basketball.
"It feels good to finally get it out of the way," Teague said in a phone interview. "I just want to get in the gym and start working out."
Chicago now have 13 players under contract for next season but do not even have enough money to sign someone on a veterans minimum deal. The best they can offer is a rookie minimum or 10-day contract, unless they trade some pieces away.
Derrick Rose should be please about that when he returns.
