Marquis Teague, Kentucky, freshman point guard (6-2, 189):
With the way the NBA is being ruled by the Derrick Rose and Russell Westbrook types, point guards who can’t defend are being exposed more than ever. Teague has the ability to slow speedy point guards while applying pressure himself. While his regular-season numbers weren’t spectacular (10 points on 41.2 percent shooting, 4.8 assists and 2.7 turnovers), he produced better when it counted most (13.3 points on 45.9 percent shooting, 4.8 assists and 2.5 turnovers in six NCAA tournament games). He could be a quality pick late in the first round.
NBADraft.net projects Teague to go to Memphis with the 25th overall pick.
