Yannis Koutroupis

Seems like Deng comments originally came from someone in Bulls/Cavs front office, but we don't know who exactly. Is that coming next?

Michael Lee

DF: "I apologize to Luol &...all that I have offended. I never should have uttered those offensive remarks & for that I apologize."

Michael Lee

DF: "Luol [Deng] is a good man who I have known for many years & he has done a tremendous amount of good for his country & around the world"

The Ferry/Deng scouting report is fascinating for many reasons, but especially if you've followed his entire career: media.cmgdigital.com/shared/news/do…

Royce Young

The negative comments about Luol Deng read by Danny Ferry appear to have come from the Cavs front office cbsprt.co/1AH3R4G

Ben Golliver

The "African" comment appears to have originated from Cavaliers source RT @Matt Moore: The full Luol Deng report media.cmgdigital.com/shared/news/do…

Lang Greene

Ferry could have got initial report with the "African" comment and then paraphrased and said "Deng could be considered a used car salesman"

Kurt Helin

Ira Winderman

Do Hawks, Ferry, NBA owe Deng more of an apology? Latest "Ask Ira" at bit.ly/1xTe4yK plus more.

Alan Hahn

Ferry making “African” reference re: Deng was obviously unnecessary to make his point. Was it meant to be a joke? Audio suggests not.

Alan Hahn

So Danny Ferry basically said Luol Deng is a phony and a locker room politician. So is half the league.

Sorry, that audio doesn't sound like a "scouting report" on Deng, more like an attack on his character based on his being "African."
