PLAYERS: Luol Deng
TEAMS: Chicago Bulls
Great Britain native, Luol Deng is speaking out about the recent cut on UK Sport funding shortly after Deng helped put British basketball on the map, most prominently this summer where he played for Great Britain during the London Olympics.

British Basketball will make a case for reconsideration to to UK Sport on Wednesday.
