South Sudan Rumors

Deng, who played 15 seasons in the NBA, had a familiar face on the opposing bench. Mike Brown coaches the Nigerian team, and used to coach Deng when they were with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2014. “I didn’t know he was going to coach the team,” Brown said “I used to coach Luol, now I’m coaching against him.” Brown credited Deng’s squad, which is inexperienced, for their grit.
South Sudan Basketball Federation (SSBF) President Luol Deng has taken matters into his own hands and will coach the senior men’s national team at the FIBA AfroBasket 2021 Qualifiers in the Rwandan capital from November 25-29. The former Chicago Bulls forward has his work cut out as the world’s youngest sovereign state looks to find a place at the high table of African basketball. Naturally, the tallest population on the continent, analysts are pitting them to dominate the hoops game in the next five years and their journey starts now. Whether they can fit the billing is a matter of time. The atmosphere in camp is that of a yearning for success.
