Report: Heat in lead to sign Luol Deng


With an opening at the small forward position thanks to LeBron’s departure, the Miami Heat are in talks with free agent forward Luol Deng. He is expected to make a decision within the next 24 hours, and CBS Sports’ Ken Berger is reporting that Miami is the leading candidate to land Deng.

Deng would definitely fit alongside the re-signed Bosh and would bring a veteran scorer as well. The team still looks to re-sign Dwyane Wade as well. Berger also provided an update on the Lakers’ pursuit of Deng, saying they are out of the running.
