Former Nets Marquis Teague, Andre Emmett Taken In D-League Draft

Marquis Teague

Two former Nets players, including one traded away last week, were selected in the NBA Development League Draft Saturday.

Guard Marquis Teague, who the Nets traded away to make room for third-string point guard Jorge Gutierrez, was selected 9th overall by Oklahoma City Thunder affiliate Oklahoma City Blue, while former New Jersey Nets forward Andre Emmett went with the third pick of the second round (21st overall) to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.

The Nets acquired Teague from the Chicago Bulls for Tornike Shengelia near the trade deadline last season, playing him sparingly over 21 games. Teague was not impressive in his stint with the Nets, as his most notable moments were getting called ugly by Paul Pierce and getting crossed up by his brother. Emmett played in six games with the New Jersey Nets in their final season in Newark, averaging 2.2 points and 1.0 rebounds in 7.5 minutes per game.

The Nets no longer have a one-to-one D-League affiliate, after their former affiliate Springfield Armor was bought by a group that moved them to Grand Rapids as the affiliate to Detroit Pistons. The Nets share an affiliation with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants with a dozen NBA teams.
