Tough situation here. If we want any production out of Deng, we'd play him as a stretch 4 next season.
Unfortunately, those minutes will be occupied by Kuzma, Randle, and Nance (2/3 of them...one will be moved at the very least). Not sure what Deng will do for us in the future...best situation I can think of is keeping him next season and biting the bullet with the stretch provision in 2018. ~36 million stretched over 5 seasons will save us ~11 million in cap space.
Should've unloaded Deng in the Russell deal instead and asked for #22 in place of 27. Oh well.
