Despite hinting they weren’t working on an extension as recently as two weeks ago, representatives of Chicago Bulls small forward Luol Deng were in Chicago recently attempting to work out a trade extension with general manager Gar Forman.
Per Yahoo Sports:
Forman and Deng’s agents, Ron Shade and Herb Rudoy, met on Monday in Chicago to further dialogue on parameters for an extension, league sources said.
Deng, 28, has one year, $14.3 million on his deal and could become part of the star-filled free-agent class of 2014 if he doesn’t reach a long-term agreement with the Bulls.
It should also all but squash the rumors of Deng being traded, which seem to happen more often than my cell phone running out of battery life.
