Luol Deng: Reaches buyout with Lakers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Deng and the Lakers reached an agreement on a buyout Saturday, making him a free agent, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Deng was owed a whopping $36.8 million over the next two years after making just one appearance during the 2017-18 season. Expectations should be low for Deng regardless of where he signs in free agency, if he even decides to continue playing, that is.

Lakers' Luol Deng: Playing days may be over
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Deng, who remains under contract with the Lakers through the 2019-20 season, is believed to be "all but semi-retired" and may never play in the NBA again, a source informed Eric Pincus of Bleacher Report.

The Lakers' decision to sign Deng to a four-year, $72 million contract on the second day of free agency in the summer of 2016 was a questionable decision at the time, and has only looked worse in hindsight. After averaging 7.6 points and 5.3 rebounds in 26.5 minutes per game over his first 56 appearances with the Lakers, Deng was effectively phased out of the rotation after the All-Star break in 2016-17 and only played in the season opener in 2017-18 before sitting out the rest of the campaign. It's not believed that the 33-year-old is in poor health, but a rebuilding Lakers squad with a number of younger, more talented forwards has simply had little incentive to give Deng minutes. Even though Los Angeles is expected to be more competitive during the upcoming season with LeBron James in the fold, there still won't be any minutes left over for Deng with Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma and others on hand. None of the league's other 29 clubs are likely willing to take on the money remaining on Deng's onerous contract, so the veteran looks like he'll continue to stick on the Lakers roster even though he's not a part of the team's plans.

Lakers' Luol Deng: Listed as out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Deng (ankle) is listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Rockets.

Deng has been dealing with a sprained left ankle recently and he's unlikely to return ahead of Wednesday's season finale against the Clippers. Prior to the injury, Deng had seen action in just one game this season, so his absence won't have an impact on the rotation.

Lakers' Luol Deng: Out Thursday vs. Timberwolves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Deng (ankle) won't play in Thursday's tilt against Minnesota.

Deng's status should have no impact on the team since he hasn't played since the first game of the year anyway as the team has favored the younger players. It's unclear when he'll be recovered from his ankle injury, but he's unlikely whenever he gets back to full health.
