  • Deng Adel: Drops 21 in return

    Adel scored 21 points (8-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT) and added eight rebounds, two assists and a steal in 21 minutes during Friday's win over the Red Claws.

    Adel was masterful in his return from an undisclosed injury that had sidelined him for nearly two weeks. He'll look to step into a larger role as Long Island is now without both Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and Henry Ellenson, both of whom were ahead of Adel on the depth chart. Across 14 games, the 22-year-old's averaging 11.1 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 22.4 minutes.

  • Deng Adel: Sidelined with undisclosed injury

    Adel was held out of Wednesday's tilt with Grand Rapids due to an undisclosed injury.

  • Deng Adel: Solid line off bench

    Adel recorded eight points (3-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds and two assists in 13 minutes during Monday's loss to the 905.

    Adel was productive in limited run Monday. His workload continues to fluctuate and should, even more, going forward with Nicholas Claxton recently joining Long Island. Across nine games, including four starts, so far, Adel's averaging 12.6 points, 4.3 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 26.9 minutes.

  • Deng Adel: Back on bench in Sunday's loss

    Adel provided 10 points (3-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, five assists and a block across 25 minutes in Sunday's loss to Maine.

    Adel returned to his usual bench role for Long Island with Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot returning to the fold. He continued his weel-rounded play, however, though he was unable to get his shot going from three. Adel is one of Long Island's primary rotational members, so the move back to the bench didn't impact his workload too much.

  • Deng Adel: Scores season-high 29 in loss

    Adel posted 29 points (10-21 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 5-7 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks across 38 minutes in Friday's loss to Raptors 905.

    Adel buoyed Long Island's starters in place of Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, impressing with his effort on both ends of the floor. The 22-year-old's rotated in-and-out of the starting lineup throughout the season, joining the first team in four-of-seven games. Though he's averaging a solid 13.6 points, 4.3 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 29.1 minutes per game so far, Adel continues to be hampered by a sub-par three-point stroke as he's shooting just 26.9 percent from long-range on 3.7 attempts per game.

Through six G-league games, including three starts, Adel's providing 11.0 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists while shooting 47.9 percent from the floor and 33.3 percent from three in 27.6 minutes.

  • Deng Adel: Waived by Brooklyn

    Adel was waived by the Nets on Monday, Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News reports.

    Adel, who averaged 1.7 points and 1.0 rebounds in 10.2 minutes across 19 games for the Cavaliers last year, could be looking for a new home as the Nets reportedly waived the forward Monday. Considering the fact that the Nets still hold Adels' G-League rights, it seems like he'll end up playing in Long Island for at least part of the upcoming season.

  • Deng Adel: Hits game-winning basket

    Adel (knee) scored 20 points (7-15 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT) including the game-winning basket in Thursday's 116-114 victory. He also contributed 10 rebounds.

    Forget the double-double, Adel's game-clinching double-clutch basket was a site to behold and certainly one of the two-way player's best moments with Canton to date. Expect Adel to continue starting at power forward so long as he's in the G League.

  • Cavaliers' Deng Adel: Returns to bench

  • Cavaliers' Deng Adel: Non-entity in start

    Adel drew his first career start in Tuesday's 103-96 loss to the Celtics, producing two points (1-4 FG, 0-3 3Pt), two rebounds and two assists in 25 minutes.

    Adel hadn't made much of an impact (2.1 points, 1.1 rebounds in 9.9 minutes per game) while entering the Cleveland rotation in the previous seven games, so it's perhaps not too surprising that he turned in a lackluster line despite receiving a larger role. Cleveland could get Kevin Love (toe) and Cedi Osman (ankle) back for Friday's game in Washington and new acquisitions Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin might also make their team debuts, making Adel a prime candidate to lose minutes or fall out of the rotation entirely.

  • Cavaliers' Deng Adel: Starting Tuesday

    Adel will draw his first career start in Tuesday's game against the Celtics, Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe reports.

    Adel, an undrafted rookie, will benefit from a plethora of injuries on the Cavaliers' roster and get the spot-start. He has played sparingly in his seven games with the team, so he figures to see a heavier workload than normal as a starter.

Adel had played in each of the Cavaliers' last six games, averaging 1.8 points and 1.2 boards in 9.2 minutes per contest.

Adel is averaging 12.3 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.8 assists through 11 games this season.
