Of course, it didn’t end there. The Athletic reported late Saturday night that the Pistons and Miami Heat “are very real possibilities” to land Westbrook. My journalistic duties require me to reach out to persons with firsthand knowledge of the situation, and two sources say there is nothing in the works. “Ridiculous,” a league source texted. “Nothing there.” Later in the text exchange, the source asked: “What would be the teams that want him?” he wrote.

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.”
