Luol Deng Reportedly in Trade Talks Between Bulls and Wizards

by June 24, 2013

There are rumblings that Chicago and Washington have had exploratory talks involving forward Luol Deng and the number 3 pick in the upcoming NBA Draft. Per ESPN: “The most likely trade construction, if talks were to progress to the serious stage, would send Deng to the Wizards for the No. 3 pick and center Emeka Okafor, who would have to formally opt into his contract for next season ($14.5 million) this week for the trade to go through. Yet it’s worth noting that Cleveland, sources say, has interest in Deng as well … and there will surely be other potential trade partners to surface if the Bulls decide they’re legitimately ready to part with Deng after years of flirting with the idea.”
