NBA Rumors: Luol Deng, Lakers Agree On Four-Year, $72M Contract

One day after agreeing to four-year contracts with center Timofey Mozgov and guard Jordan Clarkson, the Los Angeles Lakers reportedly have added another second-tier free agent to their roster in Luol Deng.

Deng is a versatile swingman capable of playing both forward positions, making him a nice fit for new Lakers head coach Luke Walton, who probably will play lots of small-ball after being an assistant with the Golden State Warriors for the last few seasons.

The former Duke star averaged 12.3 points and six rebounds in 74 games for the Miami Heat last season.
