Luol Deng to wear number nine

Luol Deng, for the entirety of his NBA career, has worn the number nine. That will not change when he suits up for the Wine & Gold for the first time this Friday, as Deng said rookie guard Matthew Delladeova has agree to give up his number. Delly will now wear number eight – just one day after his jersey and t-shirt jersey went on sale in the Cavaliers official team shop.

 

 

 

Deng also spoke the Cleveland media for the first time on Wednesday and overall was impressive. He also noted that he hardest part about leaving the Bulls was telling his mother and that he never asked Chicago’s front office for $15 million per season as previously reported.
