Re: Deng contract talks break down
My guess? Releasing contract proposals does nothing but undermine the team's position. If Team X knows that Chicago offered a 12m a year deal, suddenly it's that much easier to bid. Not to mention Deng is still under contract, and the amount of money and years offered is an indication of interest/belief in Deng as a player. Other teams having that knowledge would hurt the Bulls in the event of a trade.
