Chicago Bulls forward Luol Deng is considering offers from teams overseas according to his agent.

Chicago Bulls small forward Luol Deng has received multiple offers from teams overseas, according to his agent Herb Rudoy. With the NBA lockout only looking like it's going to continue for a while, accepting an offer with a team from Europe or Asia may be Deng's only way of playing professionally soon.

Deng grew up in Great Britain after leaving Sudan and plays for England's national basketball team. Rudoy added that European teams are getting the most interest from the Bulls forward because of that. During this summer, Deng played with Great Britain in the European championships. It's unclear exactly how much interest Deng has in playing for a foreign team.
