In case anyone forgot Luol Deng is still on the team. He hardly played last season and the season before he played a bit, but weren't any good which werent a surprise given that we had a bad team. The year before that he was quite effective for the Heat.
I almost feel bad for the guy if it werent for the fact that he's earning 18M and 18.8M these next two years.
My question is whether he has anything left in the tank. I know he wants to play, which he's said recently, but is there a role for him?
I think there is and i think it's in the Lakers best interest to try and revamp his career. Perhaps as a small-ball 5 where his defensive instincts will be an advantage. If he plays well, i think a mid-season trade is far more easy to pull off.
