It's only Teague's rookie year, and he's still just 19 years young, but the Bulls may not have much reason to keep him once Derrick Rose returns.
As it stands right now, Teague is playing just 7.6 minutes per game as one of only three point guards on the active roster. With Kirk Hinrich and Nate Robinson getting the bulk of the playing time, and with Rose on his way back, there won't be much PT for Teague this season—and probably won't be for the next few seasons, either.
The Bulls drafted Teague this summer in the late first round, possibly with the hope of him absorbing a lot of minutes at the point. However, Chicago signed both Hinrich and Robinson about a month later.
Realistically, Teague can never take the starting job from Rose, and even the second-string job will be held by Hinrich for at least next season. Teague won't get a lot of burn in his first few years. Knowing this, the Bulls may opt to trade the rookie, whose youth and potential would bring Chicago much value in return.
