The Brixton pound is launching a set of notes called “complementary currency.” Luol Deng is on the new five pound note. Via Ball Don’t Lie: “‘I am honored to be featured on the new Brixton Pound notes,’ said Deng on his foundation’s website. ‘I grew up as a young teenager player basketball for the Brixton Topcats which marked the beginning of my career. So it is with great pleasure that I am helping to support the local community that played a vital part in getting where I am today.'”
