It hasn’t been the easiest NBA journey for former Wildcat Marquis Teague.

After being drafted in the first round by the Chicago Bulls back in 2012, he was in and out of the D-League just a year after. He signed with the Brooklyn Nets in 2014, and after brief success, never latched on as a core piece of the team.

He then played two more seasons in the D-League before heading overseas to carve out a major role there for a year. And again, he headed back to the states to play in new G-League this season for the Memphis Hustle.

Now, Teague has officially earned his way back to an NBA roster.

After averaging 18 points, six assists, three rebounds, and a steal per game this season, the Memphis Grizzlies are in the process of bringing him up to the league.

Yahoo! confirmed the news:

John Calipari has talked in the past about every player’s professional journey being different and the G-League being a beneficial outlet to develop your game for the NBA. We’ve seen it with Aaron Harrison, who just found himself in a similar situation by signing a ten-day deal with the Dallas Mavericks.

Now, Teague has his shot to make a lasting impression with Andrew Harrison on the Grizzlies.

Congratulations, Marquis!
