Chicago Sun Times -
With only 16 days until the league deadline of Oct. 31 to complete contract extensions, Bulls' forward Luol Deng said he remains hopeful he and the Bulls will come to terms.

A source close to the situation said it appears more likely that the team will work out something with Deng than with Gordon, who also is eligible for an extension of up to five years.

Both of these players are stars in this league, but I agree with you guys I believe Deng is the better player, and he should get the extension. I personally believe that he's going to be a superstar in this league in a couple of seasons and he has a chance to make the All Star team this season. If he does get it before Gordon it's the right move by the Bulls organization.

It's funny how Chicago offered Deng and first pick for Richard Jefferson, 2 seasons ago. And the Nets thought they were getting ripped off.

Excellent point! They were shopping Deng for awhile, but this past season in the playoffs he proved what his true worth is.

When LeBron was in high school, this guy was ranked the second best high school player after him. He had lots of potential and going to Duke really helped him, he was off to a slow start in the NBA, but every year he has shown some improvement, and now I believe he's ready to take the next step.

Also it's funny that you mention that Kidd, because Jefferson stock has gone down in the last few seasons and Deng has gone up.
