NBA Rumors: Cleveland Cavaliers don't guarantee Luol Deng will be re-signed

The Cleveland Cavaliers are going to look at coming together more as a team in the second half of the season, as the team can still make the postseason and can still erase the ugly image of them that has been painted by bad moves, a lot of losing and a major firing.

Cavs owner Dan Gilbert spoke with Jason Lloyd of The Akron Beacon Journal and gave some insight not he future of the team. One major decision looming is re-signing Luol Deng, something that Gilbert hardly guarantees will happen int he summer.

“We love Luol for a lot of reasons, which everybody knows. Besides the kind of player he is, the kind of person he is and the kind of leader he is by example. But you can’t make these decisions in a vacuum. You have to look at all the pieces and see where you’re going to be.”

If the Cavs let Deng walk, it could be viewed as a massive disaster since they gave up so much to get him. It could also be shoveled on Grant and blamed on the poor decision of the previous regime, but either way there is still a lot of mystery about the possibility of Luol Deng returning to Cleveland in 2014-15.
