Nets Marquis Teague: I Just Didn’t Click With Thibodeau


Former Bulls point guard Marquis Teague told ESPN Chicago he knew he was going to get traded.

“I wasn’t really shocked,” said Teague, who practiced for the first time as a Brooklyn Net on Thursday. “I knew a lot of changes were being made around there, so I was kind of prepared.”

Teague practiced with the Nets for the first time on Thursday and told the media it didn’t workout, and he simply didn’t click with Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau.

“It just wasn’t clicking with Thibs [coach Tom Thibodeau] the right way,” Teague said. “Just trying to figure out the system was kind of tough for me. The way they play isn’t really my style, so it’s kind of difficult for me. But I’ve got a new start now, so I’m just looking forward to the future.”
