Will Luol Deng Leave Cleveland Cavaliers and Return to Chicago Bulls?

+Read full article

David Richard- USA TODAY Sports

The Cleveland Cavaliers gave up a lot to acquire the former Chicago Bulls‘ star Luol Deng only a few weeks ago. However, there are already rumors that he could return to his former team when his contract expires at the end of the season. The Cavaliers knew they would only be keeping Deng for a short while and would then have to persuade him to buy in to their future plans and convince him to commit his future to the team. Although they are aware of the endless paths he could end up taking, it would indeed hurt if he was to wave goodbye so early on to return to his former team.

To give Deng credit, he neither denied or accepted the possibility; he merely showed the respect one would have after such a long, successful run with one team. When asked, Deng replied “I don’t know.” He then followed that up saying, “Maybe they’ll offer me three years, $30 million. That might be an option to take.”  Deng then cleverly said, “There’s no bad blood or anything. For me to sit here and say I’m taking Chicago out of the equation, that’s stupid. I was there for 10 years.”

Deng was obviously happy to be a member of the Bulls’ team for such a long period of time, and although he seems happy to be with the Cavaliers, it’s always been assumed that he would test free agency. Whether he ends up back with Chicago, stays in Cleveland or heads for another fresh start, he will do so with good reasons and the NBA will likely respect whatever decision the British star makes.

Unfortunately, along the way, rookie point guard D'Angelo Russell was struck in the groin by an errant pass at the hands of LeBron James, and ended up on the floor in quite a bit of agony as any man would. Thankfully, after leaving the game for a few minutes, Russell was able to return.

Watch Kyrie Irving Pull Off A Spin-Deke

Kyrie Irving is obviously very talented, and but this spin move to get open for a jump shot taught a Boston Celtics player not to be overly aggressive when closing out.
