Washington Wizards have talked to free agent Luol Deng, but still determined to re-sign Trevor Ariza, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.

League sources also say stars now align in post-decision world for Luol Deng to land in Phoenix. Several teams still in mix.

Deng is a good player but he's about to get overpaid and I hope we're not the ones doing it. I doubt we are though.

Luol Deng's representatives spoke with Miami officials today, league source says. Deng hopes to choose landing spot in next 24 hours.

 

The Lakers and Mavs among teams strongly pursuing Deng. But source describes his options today as: "Miami, Miami and Miami."

Lakers, btw, no longer in running for Deng after Lin trade and Jordan Hill signing. The $10+m/yr they offered Pau was all room they had left.

 

Heat on track to get deals with Dwyane Wade & Udonis Haslem done. They're talking with Luol Deng but sides far apart, sources said.

We can move this to NBA talks.

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

Would hate to be the new guy on the Heat.  It's a let down for the fans and the new guy will never be good enough.

 

Why didnt Miami try the same S&T that Cleveland did with them 4 years ago, maybe get that now valuable pick back?

Deng is overrated, to me anyway.

 

If the Heat get Bledsoe and Deng they'll be ok for next year.

It's the East. They probably could make 2nd round/ecf

East is getting a lot stronger imo. With young prospects and vets signing over there.

ESPN sources say Heat and Luol Deng continue to negotiate. Deal that sends Deng to South Beach continues to loom as strong possibility.

 

Miami's pursuing free agent Luol Deng with an offer near $10 million per season, on a short deal, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.

David Aldridge ‏@daldridgetnt  4s

Luol Deng still deciding, per source, which almost always means "high bid wins." MIA still ahead. Mavs in it but trailing b/c of Parsons sheet.
