Is Deng at a a point in his career philosophically where winning and staying with an organization are at least equal with financial considerations? “Definitely,” he said. “At the end of the day, I try to play the best that I can play, be the best player I can be and hear what everyone has to say and listen to teams. But for me, it’s always about being comfortable, being in an organization and around people that really appreciate the things that I do. I think the financial part is what you discuss when you go into that room. There’s a lot of teams out there that can offer you a lot of money, but the feel might not be the same and vice-versa. There could be teams that can’t give you what the other team can, but they have a lot of other things they can support you with.”

Carroll and Deng each played in Game 6 Friday night in Miami – won by the Heat, thus forcing a Game 7 – and are almost surely going to play when the two teams meet to decide the series Sunday. The winner gets James Tuesday night at The Q. “I don’t never get really involved into one-on-one matchups,” James said this week. He didn’t speak to the media Saturday after practice. “I’m not a one-on-one guy, I’ve always been about team.”
