    Aggrey Sam: Bulls' price on Luol Deng is a young player and a 1st round draft pick

    Luol Deng is a wanted man. No, certainly not by law enforcement and not even so much on the NBA’s trade market, as many teams are hesitant to take him on as a half-season rental, especially if the Bulls’ price is a productive young player and a first-round draft pick, as people in the know around the league continue to say. …

    Deng’s agent, Ron Shade, wouldn’t confirm the identities of the teams who have inquired about Deng’s future services but did admit that his client has drawn multiple inquiries.

    “Several teams have already shown a lot of interest in Luol’s upcoming free agency. A lot of people are excited. A lot of people were shocked that no offer was extended to him for us to turn down and a lot of people are excited to get a chance to bid for a player like Lu, and they think it’s a great opportunity to might be able to get him for nothing in return if the Bulls let him walk,” said Shade, who along with Herb Rudoy represents Deng.

    The teams that have reportedly expressed interest in Deng include the Cavaliers, Mavericks, Lakers, Raptors, Spurs, Grizzlies and Nets, among others.

    But unless a team is a contender already — which means really only the Spurs on that list — it doesn’t make sense to meet the Bulls’ demands, especially when (a) Deng’s status beyond this season is a question mark, and (b) if his presence on a new team won’t make a material difference in how this season might play out, then it would make more sense to just sign him outright when he hits the open market next summer.

    If you are not going to resign him trade him. Stop hanging on to players you don't intend to pay and get something in return.

    Young talent? I only see Dion Waiters out of those teams.

    Cavs throwing a top-14 protected 2014 first round pick along with Waiters, would get this deal done. What the other teams can offer(especially the nets) is meh...

    Bulls asking price is too high for a rental player TBH. It justifies how much they value Deng. Deng's asking price of 14M annually is a bit affordable, if you ask me. I'll sign him to a three year $42M deal, if he accept it now.

    I'd be extremely happy with just a 10-16 pick.

    I doubt we'll get both a young player (or at least not a good young player) & a draft pick, but I'm glad they're aiming high.

    I'll be surprised if Lu's still with the Bulls after the trade deadline. They clearly aren't going to extend him, so I'm guessing he's playing for the Cavs by then.

    Not really that simple salaries need to match and you need a pick/young asset in return and needs to be some expiring contract coming back so the Bulls aren't stuck with some ****** player next year. If they don't get that asset trading him would be stupid just take the 14 mil expiring.

    I am talking about them not having the intention to trade him. I can understand if they try and things don't work out. However I don't want them to just hang on to Lu so they can try to win as many as possible.

    This FO knows if they want to resign the guy or not.

    If the Bulls were to trade Deng and get a first round pick in the process, would it be reasonable to believe they could trade their three first-round picks (assuming they get the Bobcats pick this season) and move up the board into the top three? It obviously depends on where the ping pong balls land, but it would be nice to see them parlay those picks into a potential superstar.

    Am I just dreaming?

    I wouldn't see why not , a pick in the top 5 for 3 picks in a very deep draft is very appealing .

    If the Bulls land in the lottery themselves, then sure, I could see this as a possibility. I think Parker, Wiggins & Embiid are out of the question, but anyone else might be gettable...Smart would be the guy I'd target.

    Exum sounds legit. Haven't followed college basketball much this year. Smart comes across as a tweener from the little I've read though.

    In my opinion, this would be good enough: http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=kct9vwf

    We should get rid of Bynum next year (by using the clause in his contract) and keeping Zeller and Waiters. Both Teague and Mohammed are dispensable.

    I'd trade Deng to the Spurs for Leonard and a future first right now, does not even have to be a 2014 pick.
