Unforgiving world of the NBA! That night, the fate of the expiring contract and annoying unprofessional Andrew Bynum is seen to be related to what is surely the most perfect player in the league: Luol Deng.
The now ex-winger joined Bulls Cleveland and addressing gaps team Mike Brown as 3 while Chicago receives three draft picks (first round, two seconds) with former pivot Lakers. The operation performed by Gar Forman, GM Chinatown, is financial as number one in our house psychologist will be cut immediately.
Mission engaged in reconstruction Bulls! Derrick Rose’s injury has therefore been the dreaded cross effects. With his departure, the Bulls save the last year of his contract Englishman who spent 10 seasons here, and clearly target a prospect of choice in the next draft.
“We have tremendous respect for Luol Deng, as a player and man. It has been an incredible contributor to our team on the ground. And has also done great things outside, “wished to emphasize Gar Forman before concluding:” On behalf of the entire organization, I would like to thank Luol for all his years in Chicago. ”
In ten years with the Bulls, the native of Wau (South Sudan) has marked the Franchise. He leaves Illinois as the fourth marker of the History of Bulls, behind the untouchable Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and Bob Love having scored more than 10,000 points in 10 years. On a personal level, he even managed to become All-Star twice in a row in 2012 and 2013. He also twice won the division title with Bulls in 2011 and 2012, his best result is PlayOffs a conference final lost against Miami in 2011.
With this deal, Chicago does not necessarily ensure a choice of dreams to draft because the pick obtained in the first round is protected by Sacramento (choice number 12.) In short, if the lottery Kings get a choice above or equal to the 12th position, it retrieves the pick. And in view of the season Men Mike Malone, this option is more likely. As you can see, Chicago is on course for tanking. Rumors are rife go between the probable amnesty Carlos Boozer late in the season, the departure of Tom Thibodeau and rumors of the arrival of a Carmelo Anthony.
The Cavs therefore realize a good deal, even if they take the risk of not owning the Sudanese for a few months, because it will be free this summer. But with this post 3 All-Star, Mike Brown has in his effective player who lacked both: able to defend the opponent’s best attacker while being active on the other side of the field. If with such a player, Cleveland does not find the PlayOffs, we can clearly talk about failure. Recall that Luol Deng makes a great season with standard around 19 points and 7 rebounds average. In addition to this statistical aspect, the English will play a role especially vocal leader who is sorely lacking in this young team.
The irony in this deal is that for the 12 834th time, Pau Gasol was all rumors of transfers, and the 12 834th time, it will stay the Lakers
