Who the f*** is Loul Deng?

 

NBA basketball player family were asylum seekers iirc.

 

Any idea if he is an above average NBA player, or is this just the ridiculous wages American sports players get paid?

He is a Bulls player, and probably a bit of both. He isn't fantastic but definitely above average and definitely on decent money.

 

Just had a look and he's on a 11m/13m a year contract.

He's no doubt a good player, but as M4TT says, its a bit of both. There are players on less wages who deserve to be paid more than him.

 

But he's not bad.

 

How known is he in the UK?
