Born in South Sudan and growing up in London, Luol Deng exploring the option of playing abroad during the ongoing NBA lockout doesn't come as a surprise. A posting on the website of his agency, Interperformances, Tuesday, stated the Bulls small forward was "considering to play overseas."
Deng reportedly told British-based website mvp247.com, I always wanted to play in Europe.
I always wanted to see what my game would be like. Theres a part of me, because of growing up in England, Id like to be close to there.
Deng played for Great Britain's national team during this summer's FIBA EuroBasket tournament, leading the event in scoring for the hosts of the 2012 London Summer Olympics, who will receive an automatic-qualifying bid in men's basketball.
