Former Duke star, Luol Deng, has decided to retire from the NBA after 15 seasons:

Deng was the 7th pick in the 2004 NBA Draft by Phoenix but was traded to the Chicago Bulls where he was selected to the All-Rookie First Team. He averaged 15 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists, and a steal per game during his career. He also made over $150 million while in the NBA.

Deng helped lead Duke to a Final Four appearance in 2004 while leading all freshmen in scoring, rebounding, and field goal percentage.
