Raptors Raptors interested in Deng?

Quote:
Luol Deng is already receiving interest from the Cleveland Cavaliers, Dallas Mavericks, Los Angeles Lakers, Toronto Raptors, San Antonio Spurs, Memphis Grizzlies and Brooklyn Nets among others, according to sources.

The Bulls have reportedly decided they will try to re-sign Deng in free agency.

ďIíve moved around a lot, but this is the longest Iíve been in one place my whole life and I came here at 19," Deng said. "Iím 28 now. I pretty much grew up here. So for me to think about being somewhere else, itís a weird feeling. But at the same time, I donít know what itís like to be somewhere else. Iíve been here my whole career. Maybe itís better, maybe itís not. I donít know that. The best thing I can do is play, be the best I can be and hope it works out. I donít know if it will be here, if it will be somewhere else. I donít know that.

"But right now, I canít hang on to that. I canít control that. I think when the seasonís over and everything is done, then you sit down and you go through that stuff. But for me to think about it now, itís just a waste of energy because I donít even know ó what am I supposed to think about? I donít know what city. So itís just a waste of time.Ē

Wouldn't mind it so long as one or 2 of LF, Novak or DD were dealt.

The article is talking about interest in free agency this summer, not trades.

Depends though if Bulls really screw up, I could see S&T late in the season. But yea FA is probably most likely

I could see us trading DD for a PG, or trying to move up to draft Exum and then signing Deng


??/Vasquez/Stone
Ross/Fields/Stone
Deng/??/Novak
Amir/TH/Patterson
Joval/Hayes/Amir

Wouldn't mind that at all, as long as we sign Deng on a reasonable contract

The thing is though Deng is going to get overpaid in the FA. And I would hate that team to be us, S&T would be perfect

Overpaying a 28 year old Luol Deng is not attractive to me

Honestly, this draft is filled with a lot of athletic 3's with great defensive potential who could fall within our draft range 16-18. We'd be better off using our capspace this offseason to go after someone like Greg Monroe or Eric Bledsoe (far less likely).

Lol just saying if he's coming this way I'd like to get rid of at least one of the 2 worst contracts on the team. And/or the highest paid player on the team or next worst contract.

not sure if I understand it correctly, but are you saying that we need to get rid of DD because of his 9.5mil ( which is not overpaying) who is our second best trade chip?

Not saying need to but if Deng were to come here DD would be the third contract I'd want gone. I wouldn't do Deng for DD straight up obviously. Picks and/or Butler, maybe a 3rd team OR DD sending out Novak and LF with him.

It's Vasquez. Indeed DD is the 3rd. I wouldn't even put TH or Vasquez on there to be honest. Vasquez is a RFA in the summer and Jose-lite. TH although has a decent contract - he's 28 and he is what he is. One could argue Amir has more value than DD given his contract.
