Wizards Briefly Gained Traction With Luol Deng On Three-Year, $20M Deal

Before Luol Deng signed with the Los Angeles Lakers, the Washington Wizards believed they were gaining traction on a deal worth less than $20 million over three seasons.

Deng signed a four-year, $72 million deal with the Lakers that stunned Washington in comparison to what they offered.

Because of the free agent contracts the Lakers signed Deng and Timofey Mozgov to during the 2016 offseason, they may struggle to fit even one max-level deal into their cap.

The Lakers have ambitiously pursued the likes of Carmelo Anthony and LaMarcus Aldridge in 2014 and 2015, but settled for Deng and Mozgov in 2016.
