3:05pm Why is Deng so bad lately? He can't jump, can't shoot, can't play D, can't get to the free throw line etc. Is there any hope some team would take on his salary or are we stuck forever? On the positive he's a wonderful human being, just an awful basketball player and what makes it worse it that he totally stopped working on his game, body, and attitude. AJ, Chicago You didn't hear it, but I got a laugh out of your question. Understatement: Lu hasn't had a terrific season. He's suffered most trying to adjust to the way the team is playing. The Bulls are playing around Derrick Rose and Ben Gordon is going to get his shots when he's on the floor. Early on the coaches told Lu it was his job to remain in the corner and get shots based off passes out from double teams. When Lu was at his best under Skiles, he had Lu moving and slicing and coming off screens. With his size that was an advantage and he can finish at the basket. What has compounded it is that Lu seems to have become resentful and hasn't been as aggressive as the offense hasn't included him as much as it should. He has also been hurt, and played well after the latest injury, but after these trades he's lost some time with Salmons and now is hurt again. It's been a frustrating sesason. I don't expect him to be traded but he's hardly untouchable, with the economics this long term contract precludes a deal most likely. The Bulls like him enough to consider him part of the core, I expect he'll be with the team and hope the staff includes him more and he becomes more engaged as well.
