Although ESPN announced otherwise, Luol Deng will not imitate Dwyane Wade and become a free agent. Herb Rudoy, the agent of the All-Star, announced that his client preferred to stay at the Miami Heat, and honour the second year of his contract at 10.1 million.

At 30, the former player of the Bulls and Cavs conducted an honest season with 14 points,
47% success rate and 5.2 rebounds average.

Being that Dwyane wade is a priority for Pat Riley and that Goran Dragic is in the balance, Pat Riley still has some work to do, but he will not have to worry about the next Deng contract.

The question is whether Deng will remain the title holder since the Miami Heat selected Justise Winslow in the draft, and that Duke’s star has the potential to push Deng to the bench.

It seems that Deng’s time in Miami will be coming to an end after just one season. Hassan Whiteside will also become an unrestricted free agent in July 2016, quite convenient for the Heat who are saving some cap room.

They also found a replacement for Deng after snagging former Duke Blue Devil Justise Winslow, a 6’6, 222-pound swigman.
