Luol Deng would love to play for the British Basketball program during the 2012 London Olympics, but a battle is brewing over who will cover the insurance for Deng due to his wrist injury.  Now comes the accusation that the Bulls would like for Deng to withdraw and focus on his long term health.  Chris Spice, the director of the British Basketball program recently stated the following:

"Luol Deng is hugely committed to the British Basketball program and he has maintained this stance despite recent pressure for him not to play after injuring his wrist during the highly-demanding shortened NBA season," Spice's statement said. "We admire and support his stance. Luol is a true professional and manages his body extremely well as shown by the high amount of minutes he was able to play for his club after sustaining the injury in January."
