DENG IN LINE TO BE A LAKER

Former Great Britain international Luol Deng is set to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers next week.

Currently a free agent, the one-time Brixton TopCats junior has agreed a four-year £54 million contract as a free agent after spending the past two seasons with the Miami Heat, in a move first reported by Yahoo Sports.

The 31-year-old Deng, who last played for GB in 2012, averaged 12.3 points and 6.0 rebounds for Miami last season.

The Lakers will become his fourth NBA team following previous stints in Cleveland and Chicago. He will become the second player from the UK to feature for the Lakers, following Steve Bucknall.
