Luol Deng and the Chicago Bulls have been together for quite awhile, but while the former is preparing to play for Great Britain in the 2012 Olympics, the latter is popping up in quite a few NBA trade rumors.
One of those rumors had the Bulls trading Deng to the Golden State Warriors in exchange for Andris Biedrins, Dorrell Wright and the seventh pick in this week's NBA Draft. That apparently won't be the case, however, as Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reported Monday morning that Deng has been told he won't be going to Golden State.
The Bulls have privately assured Luol Deng that there's "no chance" of a deal sending him to the Warriors, league source tells Y!— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) June 25, 2012
The key caveat in that Tweet is that the Bulls have simply told Deng that he won't be headed to the Warriors, not that he won't be traded at all. This could get interesting.
