Marquis Teague admitted he was surprised the Bulls picked him 29th overall in Thursday night's NBA draft but the rookie point guard said he's looking forward to talking to Derrick Rose.

"I will be able to learn a lot from him," Teague said. "He's one of the best point guards in the league if not the best. I'm going to take advantage of that every single day and come and compete and try to get better."

Teague said his brother, Jeff, a point guard for the Hawks, gave some idea of what he can expect as a rookie.

"My brother told me a little about the Bulls," he said. "They are big on defense and playing for coach [John Calipari at Kentucky], he plays the same style. He likes to defend, run the ball, so I feel I should fit in with this team great. I feel I can do good things here."
