Deng Gives Bulls An Ultimatum

Long term deal now, or Deng says he signs the qualifying offer this year and then tests the market next summer. :mad:

If he doesn't get the long term deal now, look for Deng to have an outstanding season considering he'll be playing for a big contract next year and will want to play to increase his stock.

The message to the Bulls promises to be implicit: Unless the two sides come to terms soon, Deng will never again negotiate with them. He will not let the uncertainty over his future hang over another basketball season, and unless a sign-and-trade is worked out, Deng will play out his final season in 2008-09 and sign elsewhere next summer.

Mabey we can trade Joey and Bargs for him!

Seriously though, he'll have alot of suitors next year if he has a season this year like he should.

He'll get a nice raise in 09-10

BC has certainly got to be hoping these negotiations don't get any better. Deng is the exact type of player we want to see sign the QO and become a UFA next summer.

We're also in an excellent position to offer pieces Chicago could use in a S&T situation. Get it done Bryan!!

Haha. I hope we can get S&T. He'd likely want to resign with us
