Luol Deng responds to remarks of Hawks general manager Danny Ferry

25 Comments

Hawks general manager Danny Ferry, in a conference call with team owners, allegedly said of Luol Deng, “he has a little African in him. Not in a bad way, but he’s like a guy who would have a nice store out front but sell you counterfeit stuff out the back.”

Ferry has defended himself, though calls for his firing persist.

Now Deng, whom Atlanta pursued in free agency and who ultimately signed with the Heat, is responding as well.

Deng, via Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press:

Well said.
