Being Luol Deng can't be that bad because he still has that NBA money. Still, moving on from a strong Chicago Bulls team to the Cleveland Cavaliers can't be a good experience.
Deng unfortunately probably isn't staying in Cleveland to team up with LeBron James, but where he might land is better than where he was last season. Miami is making moves to sign him, according to ESPN.
ESPN sources also say that Miami is making progress in its pursuit of Luol Deng to team him with Chris Bosh and soon-to-reupped Dwyane Wade— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) July 12, 2014
Miami has a reliable scoring option and a good defender if it signs Deng. The team is going to fall off, but it's still going to be respectable.
UPDATE: It's a done deal. Deng has signed a two year, $20 million deal to join Miami next season and become the new third member of the "big three." While Dallas, Atlanta, and Phoenix all made bids for the forward, he'll be taking his talents to South Beach this fall.
