NBA Rumors: Luol Deng

The dominoes are expected to fall, and fall fast, now that LeBron James has made his decision to return to Cleveland.

One of those dominoes is Luol Deng, who along with Trevor Ariza and Carmelo Anthony, are the top free agent small forwards remaining on the market. On Friday, one report indicated that Phoenix could now be a major player for Deng.
With LeBron James now in Cleveland, and Chris Bosh expected to sign with Houston, multiple reports indicate that the Rockets plan to match Dallas' offer sheet to Chandler Parsons.

That's great for the Cavs and Rockets. But what about the Mavs? Who do they turn to if they miss out on Parsons?

Just a few days ago, it looked like Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade would re-sign with the Miami Heat at a discount in order to re-join LeBron James, who would get a max deal. However, that plan remains entirely up in the air at this point, partially because Bosh may decide to chase the big bucks elsewhere.

"A rival team executive told CBSSports.com Friday that the growing belief around the league is that Bosh would prefer a four-year max deal with another team to a discounted, longer-term deal with Miami," wrote Ken Berger of CBSSports.com.

Berger noted that there are many teams which are, or could be, in position to give Bosh a max offer.
