  • Heat Sign Luol Deng To 2 Years $20 Million

    Luol Deng joining Miami Heat - ESPN

    Deng is a good player. I wish the Lakers offered him this contract.

    Free-agent swingman Luol Deng is joining the Miami Heat, his agents Herb Rudoy and Ronald Shade confirmed to's Marc Stein.

    It is a two-year, $20 million contract with a player option after this coming season, sources told Stein.

    Dallas and Atlanta had been in the hunt for Deng, as was Phoenix, who jumped into the mix on Saturday, according to sources.

    Deng is entering his 11th NBA season, having spent almost his entire career with the Chicago Bulls. He was traded from Chicago to Cleveland in January after years of trade rumors.

    The Heat plan to team Deng with the freshly re-signed Chris Bosh and soon-to-be-reupped Dwyane Wade in the wake of LeBron James' decision to return to his home-state Cleveland Cavaliers.

    Deng appeared in 40 games with the Cavaliers after the trade last season.

    Deng has averaged 16.0 points per game in his career, after being chosen No. 7 overall from Duke in the 2004 draft.
