The Bulls have made a second attempt to assign guard Marquis Teague to the D-League's Iowa Energy. They sent Teague to Iowa on Dec. 3, but he returned to Chicago immediately because guard Mike James had a knee injury.

James has since been released, but the Bulls believe they have a good point guard rotation with Kirk Hinrich and newcomer D.J. Augustin. Hinrich played against Brooklyn on Wednesday after missing five games with a sore back.

The Bulls want Teague to get extended playing time and figure they can always bring him back on short notice if there's another injury. Teague has averaged 2.4 points and 1.5 assists this season. Iowa has two home games this weekend against the Maine Red Claws.
