07:21 AM ET 09.24 | Would the return of Derrick Rose be followed not long after by the departure of Luol Deng? [Deng] was looking for an extension in the offseason. But Chicago opted not to give him one, which will allow him to explore unrestricted free agency next summer. It doesn't mean Deng is gone for sure. But it introduces the possibility. ... [Given that Andre Iguodala] got a four-year, $48 million free agent deal from Golden State as part of a sign-and-trade deal with Utah, Deng's floor would be at $12 to $13 million per year. Anything above that is likely to be too rich for the Bulls, given the possibilities Chicago can entertain after this season. "We never negotiated," Rudoy said Friday. "We had several meetings. One was to discuss the medical care he got, or did not get, after his spinal tap [in May], which was of great concern to him."
