Luol Deng has been a Chicago Bull for his entire career but after next season he will be a free agent. Deng’s agent has said that Deng will go through the free agency process.
“Luol has taken the position that he will definitely go through the free-agent process,” said Herb Rudoy, Deng’s Chicago-based agent.
Right now Deng is a part of 6 year $71 Million deal.
Here is what a source with the Bulls told Yahoo Sports
“We’re not upset, Luol isn’t upset. We’re just looking forward to this season and next summer,” continued the individual, who acknowledged that Bulls management expressed how much they value the two-time All-Star, even stating their desire to see him retire in a Bulls uniform. “They were willing to wait and risk losing him next summer as an unrestricted free agent.”
With the emergence of Jimmy Butler the Bulls could make Deng expandable. Teams like the Mavericks and Lakers have plenty of cap room. You would have to think they would look at Deng.
