For a moment, Luol Deng was back in Chicago, back with the Bulls, back to one of those nauseating moments when word broke of another injury setback for Derrick Rose. "Honestly," Luol Deng said Wednesday, "I was almost in tears. It's different when you know the guy that well. He's a tough guy. I think he'll be fine. But it's just three seasons in a row. He wants to do what he loves, but things keep happening. And honestly, a lot of people would deal with it differently. He just keeps going and keeps working hard." South Florida Sun-Sentinel

However, the Heat’s struggles have not made Deng want out. “I’ve had no issues,” he said. “My whole thing this year has been trying to get it right. It’s never been that I’m unhappy. Just because there are trade rumors– I’m not the one asking for a trade… I’m not the one starting the rumors or whatever’s going on. I know just as much as you, honestly.” Palm Beach Post
