Deng Will Not Play for the U.K.

Luol isn’t healthy enough to suit up for Britain this summer: “It’s a very tough decision not being able to play but it was just a tough year last year with my injury. I’m very committed to the program, as everybody knows. The fracture of my leg was such a serious injury that I need all summer in order to go full speed and I’m not full speed yet, but I’m almost there. Right now it’s the right decision, hopefully it will come out as a small sacrifice for my future with the Bulls and my future playing with GB.”

    why is he still not ready, i hope the real reason is that the bulls didnt let him go cuz deng has been injured for months. I beleive he is acting like a little girl and is way to soft to play in this league. Hopefully he proves me wrong because a starting lineup of rose, hinrich, salmons, thomas and noah with pargo, johnson, gibson and miller of the bench sounds better than any lineup with deng at the moment

    wow that line-up doesn’t look all that good on paper… Rose better progress and Deng better come back better then before. 3 better’s in one sentence.. new record?

  • Rich

    BG is laughing right now. The Bulls overpaid dude and didn’t want to give Gordon his money. Deng is soooo weak.

  • Anony Mous

    What is Deng making like 11M a year or somtn? Thats not really overpaying.. I’m not saying its cheap but he’s 24 or so years old and he can block a shot with two hands… lol anyone remember that?

  • Josh D

    GB is screwed,but this is old news 4 me, and for some reason,after he said he’d play if he got his contract done soon, BG doesn’t wanna play either, by the way its Great Britain, not the UK the UK includes Northern Ireland GB only has England, Scotland and Wales

  • Orlando Woolridge

    I don’t know why Gordon would be laughing, he still isn’t making as much money as Deng, is he? I’ll agree that Deng is hella overpaid though.

    Whats John Ameachi think of all this?

  • Realosophy

    deng needs to comeback hard, GB is gonna miss him this summer

  • Rich

    Look, Deng is OVERPAID. He’s soft, no post game, no inside game. He forced Chicago to pay him before he went to work out for Great Britain 2 summers ago. That screwed the whole team. So yeah, he’s overpaid. Not worth the money. Gordon is laughing at Chicago cause of how they paid that dude and now he’s not even going to be 100% healthy come next season.
