My bad I mis-read... he would have to do it to make the money work. Yea, he'd be insane to leave that money on the table. At best, he's a MLE guy these days. People tend to overpay for size.
There is "no truth" to a rumored trade sending Luol Deng to the Wizards, sources tell the Washington Post.
ESPN.com reports that the Bulls and Wizards had "exploratory talks" about swapping Deng for the No. 3 pick and Emeka Okafor, but it seems the Bulls made the initial offer and the Wizards weren't interested. Any deal would be contingent upon Deng agreeing to re-sign with Washington, another very high hurdle. We'll let you know if anything substantial emerges from these rumors.
