#Heat are optimistic about re-signing Goran Dragic & Luol Deng. Dragic keeps saying he wants to stay: heatzone.blog.palmbeachpost.com/2015/04/17/spo…

Barry Jackson

Even if Deng opts out of $10.1 M, Heat would still be capped out if Dragic re-signs.

Jason Lieser

#Heat hoping to keep potential free agents Goran Dragic & Luol Deng. "We love them; hopefully they love us." heatzone.blog.palmbeachpost.com/2015/04/17/spo…

Jason Lieser

Spoelstra on Dragic & Deng (free agents): "We love them. Hopefully they love us."

Ethan J. Skolnick

Spoelstra on Dragic & Deng: "We love them. Hopefully they love us."

Ethan J. Skolnick

Spoelstra says next few weeks will be "torture" as they wait out player decisions (Dragic, Deng) b4 they can do all their planning

Barry Jackson

Link: Dragic on what he can do with Bosh; Deng's candor; Lots of Heat notes; what Barkley told me earlier today: miamiherald.typepad.com/sports-buzz/20…

Charlie Villanueva

Big birthday shouts and love to one of my brothers from Day 1 @Luol Deng. It goes way back to Blair Academy H.S. days. A friend forever!!!

Jason Lieser

Haslem led #Heat in charges taken (16) because he eats charges for breakfast. Next: Chalmers 10, Walker 7, G Dragic 7, Deng 5, Hamilton 4.

Demian Belmonte

Feliz 30 cumpleaños para Luol Deng! Su ficha: bit.ly/1GNfUFb

Jason Lieser

Will Wade recruit Deng & Dragic to stay? "Nope. They know. If they want to be here, they'll be here."

Ira Winderman

Heat hopeful for rapid revival, including potential impending free agents Dragic, Deng (another good sign). bit.ly/1b4Gqg7

Ira Winderman

Heat not declaring Wade, Goran, Whiteside, Birdman or Deng out, but you basically can read the writing on the lottery wall.

Jason Lieser

That means #Heat are holding out Wade (knee), G. Dragic (back), Deng (knee) & Whiteside (hand), plus others.

Jason Lieser

Erik Spoelstra wouldn't need to justify laying down tomorrow. Wade, Deng, Whiteside, Haslem, Andersen & others are legitimately injured.

Jason Lieser

#Heat are now in position to get a long summer & come back w/ Dragic, Wade, Deng, Bosh, Whiteside, McRoberts & TBD top-10 pick. That works.

Adi Joseph

Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Luol Deng have combined to miss 65 games this season.

Jason Lieser

Deng told me off the record he will handle it identically to what LeBron did last summer in every way. twitter.com/arod0034/statu…

Jason Lieser

Luol Deng sounds like he's leaning toward sticking w/ #Heat. Here's what he said about The Decision: heatzone.blog.palmbeachpost.com/2015/04/14/too…

Ethan J. Skolnick

Follow on last nt's Deng tweets: if he wants to b cutter, not spacer, he's a better fit next to Bosh-McRoberts frontline than Whiteside-Bosh

Jason Lieser

Traded Shawne Williams ends the yr as #Heat's top 3pt shooter (100+ att.) at 39.5%. Next: Bosh 37.5%, Napier 36.4%, Deng 35.5%, Walker 32%.

Jason Lieser

Zero #Heat players will appear in every game. Here are the leaders with 1 game left: Chalmers 80, Deng 72, 3. Wade 62, Haslem & Ennis 61.

Jason Lieser

What's #Heat F Luol Deng thinking about his possible free agency this summer? heatzone.blog.palmbeachpost.com/2015/04/14/too…

Emiliano Carchia

Heat forward Luol Deng says it's too early to talk about his future sportando.com/en/usa/nba/158…

Barry Jackson

Deng respectfully declined to discuss whether he will exercise $10.1 M option for next season, saying he hasn't thought about it.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Final quote from Deng: "I love this organization. It's been top-class everything. I've had 1 of my healthiest yrs. Med staff has been great"

Ethan J. Skolnick

Deng about spacing: "I don't really like to be staying still. It's not my strength. I could shoot a high % but I'm not per se a shooter."
