How did Meyers Leonard find out he was traded to the Heat? “To be honest, I was actually in the middle of an offseason workout,” Leonard said Saturday on a conference call with reporters. The 7-1, 255-pound center looked down at his trainer’s phone and saw the tweet from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. “I was like, ‘OK, you’re actually not joking,’” Leonard said. “I walked over and I spoke to my agent, I spoke to my wife. I went ahead and finished the workout. And then afterwards, honestly it was a bit of an odd feeling for me.”

The Chicago Bulls announced today the signing of Luol Deng. After signing, Deng made known his intent to retire from the NBA. “We’re very fortunate and humbled that Luol has chosen to retire as a Chicago Bull,” said President and Chief Operating Officer Michael Reinsdorf. “He was a role model on and off the court during his nine-plus years in Chicago, and he gave everything he had to help us win. I want to thank Luol for not only what he accomplished on the court for the team, but also for the leadership he demonstrated through his philanthropic efforts.”
“From the moment we made Luol Deng the seventh overall pick of the 2004 NBA Draft, the Chicago Bulls became a better team,” said Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations John Paxson. “Luol carried himself with first-class professionalism and leadership, helping lead his Bulls team to eight playoff appearances during his time in Chicago. We’ll always remember his All-Star career and the fierce competitiveness he brought to both ends of the floor every night.”
