Deng wants to PLAY, not be stretched on a team that keeps him deep on the bench. If he's suddenly only concerned with his nest egg upon retirement, then great, this article is the blueprint. But not likely.

I think the idea is that he signs an extension and they waive and stretch him over 11 years (3.3 mil per). He gets to find a team who will play him and the Lakers get to pursue 2 max FAs (har har). Win-win.

It's kind of weird that he's not playing, I mean, he's no Brook Lopez but he's not Adam Morrison either. The paper and the politics of it all.

He's not a small forward anymore and we have Nance-Randle-Kuzma at pf. How do you squeeze him in there?
