Luol Deng set to compete for GB in Eurobasket

 

The lockout began on 1 July, with owners calling for an overhaul in the NBA's pay structure, thus creating insurance issues for players.
But Deng has negotiated a deal with Team GB representatives to ensure he can compete in the event.
 
Eurobasket 2011 takes place from 31 August to 18 September in Lithuania.
 
"Playing for GB is always important to me so I'm really glad we could resolve this," said the 26-year-old Deng.
 
"It has been a long process but a great team effort. I can't wait to join the team and prepare for Lithuania."
 
British Basketball's performance director Chris Spice said: "[Deng] has always been a great supporter of the GB basketball programme and we are excited to have him on the court again this year after he played such a key role for us in qualifying last year."
