Well you have to consider that Luol Deng is going to cost money and he plays the same spot, just my opinion, but theres not point in paying Nocioni 40 mill over 5 and then the same to deng. Deng might even cost more by the time his contract is up.
Personally I dont like the idea of paying two ppl in the same position that much money, thats what the Knicks do. And I definetley dont want to go down their path! They may have to choose between the two, in which case I hope they choose Deng, not only because he is more talented, but he is much younger.
