The Chicago Bulls are receiving inquiries about the availability of Luol Deng and he has come to accept the possibility of a move.
“Maybe some guys dwell on that or would be bothered by it, but, honestly, I really don’t care,’’ Deng said. “I know that I want to be here. I’ve always wanted to be here.
‘‘But I’m mature enough to understand that I can’t worry about things I can’t control. If I wake up tomorrow, they call me and they tell me otherwise, then that’s what it is. I can’t control that. That’s their job, and they’ve got to do their job. That’s a decision they have to make on what they feel is best for the team.’’
The Bulls and Deng were upwards of $5 million per season apart on an extension before breaking off talks.
