While all the attention has been on Lou Williams as of late, Luol Deng could also be on the move. Here are three potential landing spots for the two-time All-Star.

The Lakers’ lineup changes have offered mixed results

The Lakers’ lineup changes have offered mixed results

The starters have been good, but the rest of the team’s lineups have been less positive. Five games ago, the Los Angeles Lakers fully embraced their youth movement in the starting lineup. High-priced and underwhelming free agent additions Luol Deng and Timofey Mozgov were out, and Tarik Black and Brandon Ingram were in to replace them. Despite having their metrics nuked by a loss to the Phoenix Suns in which the Lakers essentially rolled over in their last game before the All-Star break, the new lineup has been fairly solid so far. The Lakers have outscored their opponents by 2.1 points...

NBA Trade Rumors: Lakers Trade Luol Deng To Kings For Rudy Gay And Ben McLemore?

NBA Trade Rumors: Lakers Trade Luol Deng To Kings For Rudy Gay And Ben McLemore?

Bold NBA trade rumors are emerging ahead of the upcoming February 23 deadline, and the Los Angeles Lakers are a team constantly being discussed. There have been reports over the months that the Lakers are holding onto several key members of their young roster, but there are a few players who they can part ways with. Among those players are former NBA All-Star Luol Deng, who has shown his ability to contribute in previous seasons. Could L.A. possibly swap the veteran with the Sacramento Kings to bring scorer Rudy Gay into the mix?Click here to continue and read more...

Tarik Black offers reminder he is an NBA player in Lakers’ new starting lineup

Tarik Black offers reminder he is an NBA player in Lakers’ new starting lineup

Los Angeles’ underrated big man was once again impressive in his new role. If you search “Tarik Black” on USA Today’s sports photo archive, there is only a single, solitary photo of the Los Angeles Lakers’ new starting center from the night of his debut (the one used above). This is somehow a fitting ode to Black, who was probably the fourth name to come to mind when most think about the storylines surrounding the new lineup change. “Brandon Ingram is starting,” or “Luol Deng and Timofey Mozgov are benched” were probably the first angles most thought of regarding head...

Lakers News: Timofey Mozgov, Luol Deng handle benchings with class

This could have been an ugly situation. When the Los Angeles Lakers signed Timofey Mozgov and Luol Deng to their bloated deals, they probably had conversations with both of them about the franchise’s priorities this year and moving forward. While that probably helped, there’s simply no way of knowing how veterans might handle perceived marginalization. Fortunately for everyone involved, the judgement of character that the Lakers hoped for with both Deng and Mozgov held true, and they handled their respective situations with as much class and professionalism anyone could hope for....

Lakers Podcast: Why did the Lakers’ new lineups work so well?

The team’s changes to the rotation look good so far. Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton made a move many fans have been clamoring for since almost the start of the season in the team’s win against the New York Knicks on Tuesday: he started Brandon Ingram. The rookie also wasn’t the only new starter, as Tarik Black got the nod with the first five while Luol Deng was moved to the bench and Timofey Mozgov was moved to the DNP-CD column of the score sheet. Hosts Harrison Faigen and Anthony Irwin shared their immediate thoughts on the new lineups (as well as D’Angelo Russell’s...

Luol Deng will come off Lakers' bench versus Knicks

Los Angeles Lakers forward Luol Deng will come off the bench for Monday's game against the New York Knicks. What It Means: Brandon Ingram is drawing the start on Monday night, and there's a possibility this becomes a permanent switch moving forward. This will be the first game off the bench for Deng this season. With his arrow pointing down, he's droppable in most formats. Our models expect Deng to log 19.7 minutes off the bench, and we project him to record 6.1 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.2 3-pointers on that workload. Source: Rotoworld.com

Brandon Ingram confirmed as starter for Lakers Monday

Los Angeles Lakers small forward Brandon Ingram will move into the starting five for Monday's game against the New York Knicks. What It Means: Luol Deng will move back to the bench as a result. With the Lakers looking ahead to the future, they're going to focus more on developing the young guns. This could result in a permanent lineup change, so Ingram could be worth the add in most leagues. Our models currently project Ingram to record 7.2 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 24.7 minutes on Monday night. Source: Rotoworld.com

Luol Deng is right. Refugees affected by Donald Trump’s travel ban aren’t committing terrorist attacks

Deng, a former South Sudan refugee, tried to be optimistic about the future, but admitted it’s hard. Add Los Angeles Lakers forward Luol Deng to the growing list of NBA players and coaches to speak out on President Donald Trump’s immigration ban. If you really want to look into that, you’ve got to go into facts and what is true and what is not,” Deng said, according to the Orange County Register’s Mark Medina.
