Report: Turkish Team Pushing Hard To Sign Luol Deng

Turkish basketball team Besiktas Milangaz is reportedly pushing hard to land Chicago Bulls forward Luol Deng to pair with guard Deron Williams, according to a tweet from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Besiktas, who secured New Jersey Nets star Deron Williams in July, is reportedly looking for front court help from the NBA. Deng, who spent much of his youth outside of the United States, is rumored to be a perfect fit for the team.

Through five games this season Williams has helped lead Besiktas to a perfect 5-0 record by averaging 21.4 points per game.

Deng, 25, averaged 17.4 points and 5.8 rebounds per game for the Bulls last season.
