The latest 2012 NBA Draft Grades from ESPN's Chad Ford have a most positive take on the Chicago Bulls' selection at No. 29.
According to Ford, the Bulls earned an "A-" for grabbing PG Marquis Teague late in the first round:
Analysis: The Bulls got the 19th-ranked player on our Big Board with the No. 29 pick. So, not only did they get the best player available here, but they filled a need. With Derrick Rose out for the start of the season, Teague might find some minutes right away.
Teague is still learning his craft as a point guard, but he is super quick, gets to the rim and was an emerging shooter at Kentucky ... Virtually every scout I spoke with thinks he has much more potential than his brother, Jeff. Given that Jeff is the starting point guard in Atlanta, I think the Bulls made out very well.
Elsewhere, the Bulls received a "C" from NBC Sports, a "C" from SB Nation's Andrew Sharp and a "B" from CBS.
