The Chicago Bulls assigned point guard Marquis Teague to the Iowa Energy of the NBA Development League on Tuesday.
Teague, a first-round pick in 2012, has played in nine games for the Bulls this season and averaged 1.2 points and 0.8 assists in less than nine minutes per game.
With Derrick Rose out for the season, Teague has not experienced an increase in playing time. Mike James passed him in the rotation as the primary backup to starter Kirk Hinrich.
Teague was selected 29th overall in the 2012 NBA Draft, after helping lead the University of Kentucky to the 2012 NCAA Championship.
