The Utah Jazz are expected to pursue free agent forward Luol Deng this summer. The Jazz will try to steal him away from the Miami Heat in the early stages of free agency.

Deng has said multiple times that he would prefer to stay with the Heat. Deng averaged 13.1 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.9 assists during his two seasons with the Heat. He had previously spent played with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Chicago Bulls.

The Jazz are pretty set at forward and pursuing Deng could just have been a waste.
