Chicago Bulls

Luol Deng, South Sudan

The Chicago Bulls enjoyed some of their best post-Michael Jordan days during Luol Deng’s time with the franchise.

The South Sudanese wing was taken seventh overall out of Duke by the Bulls in the 2004 NBA draft and spent a successful nine-and-a-half year stint with the team.

Chicago missed the playoffs just once while Deng was there, their best campaign coming in 2010-11, when they went 62-20 and reached the Eastern Conference Finals before falling to the Miami Heat.

Deng currently places highly in various career statistics for the Bulls, including points (No. 4), rebounds (No. 9) and steals (No. 5).
