DENG SAYS GB LACKS CLEAR GOALS
- Updated: August 22, 2015
Luol Deng has joined the criticism of British Basketball’s management, saying their inaction is a prime reason for his international exile.
The Miami Heat forward has not represented Great Britain since the 2012 Olympics, leading to accusations of disloyalty from within the sport as the national side has slid down the FIBA rankings and lost its UK Sport funding.
But although Deng – who is hosting a development camp in London this weekend – admits insurance issues over his £6m annual contract in the NBA is a factor, he has mirrored the recent barb thrown by former team-mate Drew Sullivan at the lack of relationship building and vision shown by the governing body.
