Chicago Bulls NBA Summer League Update

Hard to really say what you can takeaway from two summer league games, but for the Chicago Bulls; progress comes to mind, as the Bulls beat the Denver Nuggets to improve to 2-0.

Marquis Teague appears to be developing into the backup point role they need him to fulfill come this time next year when Kurt Hinrich becomes an unrestricted free agent.


Teague had another solid performance Monday night, scoring 15pts on 50% shooting from the floor, with 7asts.

For the love of god, somebody get Andrew Goudelock a contract.

Yes, it’s summer league but the guy is on a tare with a 2013 Summer League best 31pts Monday night.

If I’m Gar Forman, I have to be thinking a minimum level contract, just for a year to test Goudelock in Thib’s system. He appears to play exceptionally well with Snell, Teague, and Murphy.

Tony Snell had a difficult night shooting (2-9), but showed a slashing mentality that is a carbon copy of what they’re expecting him to bring to the offense next year. Hopefully he can raise his point total per game and develop his shot while facing tough competition in Las Vegas. Erik Murphy didn’t look terrible! 18pts on 7-10 shooting is pretty ideal for the new big man, although the fact that he’s not capable of grabbing rebounds is a tad concerning. Murphy didn’t look interested in the rim at all tonight, something his two total rebounds clearly dictate.


Chicago plays again Tuesday night against the Portland Trail Blazers, I’ll be looking for this:

  • Can Goudelock keep up his torrential pace?
  • Can Teague continue to bring the Bulls balanced and valuable minutes?
  • Can Snell shoot higher than 30% from the field?
  • Will Erik Murphy learn how to rebound?
