NBA free agency: Lakers agree to four-year, $72 million deal with Luol Deng

first_imgDeng, who was born in Sudan, also plans to take advantage of various business and philanthropic opportunities in Los Angeles. He will explore local initiatives with a pan-African investment fund and for his self-named foundation, which builds outdoor basketball courts and hosts clinics in various parts of Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States. Deng’s L.A-based holding company, D3N9, has invested in JUST Water, which promotes the use of paper-based bottled water. His sports agency, Octagon, also has an LA-based office. Mozgov, Clarkson and Deng will sign their contracts once the NBA moratorium ends on July 7. The Lakers currently have 11 players committed for the 2016-17 season. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The Lakers landed an established veteran that could inject both talent and leadership to complement their young roster.The Lakers and Luol Deng agreed to a four-year, $72 million deal, according to league sources. Deng had extensive conversations with other NBA teams, including the Washington Wizards and Utah Jazz. Deng also had a meeting with the Jazz on Friday, sources said.Yet, the 31-year-old Deng narrowed in on the Lakers for a few reasons. He likes the potential of the team’s young players, including D’Angelo Russell, Jordan Clarkson, Brandon Ingram, Julius Randle and Larry Nance Jr. Deng talked with Lakers coach Luke Walton and was “pleased with the conversation,” sources said. And the Lakers consistently stayed in touch with Deng’s representatives, reaching out shortly after free agency began Thursday at 9:01 p.m..center_img The Lakers did not establish whether Deng would be a starter or a reserve, but he’s expected to play a significant role after averaging 15.5 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.4 assists in his 12-year NBA career with stints with the Chicago Bulls (2004-14), Cleveland Cavaliers (2014) and Miami Heat (2014-16). Although he averaged 12.3 points last season in Miami in what marked his lowest since his rookie season in Chicago (2004-05), Deng averaged 15.2 points and 8.1 rebounds following the All-Star game. That coincided with Chris Bosh’s prolonged absence because of blood clots. Deng has cemented a strong reputation around the NBA as both a versatile forward and positive locker room influence.“Congr[a]ts my brother,” Heat guard Dwyane Wade tweeted. “Now you can afford your own @stance socks..One of my all time favorite teammates. Proud to call you a friend!”The Lakers have around $12 million left to spend on next season’s payroll after also agreeing to deals with center Timofey Mozgov (four years, $64 million) and Clarkson (four years, $50 million). The Lakers offered Deng a contract after Kent Bazemore declined an offer worth the same amount. Instead, Bazemore agreed to stay with Atlanta on a four-year, $70 million deal. last_img read more

Efficient Windows

first_img9 Steps to A Greener CodeNew homes built using the 2009 International Residential Code (IRC) or International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) will be more energy efficient than ever. As a consequence, a builder’s world may become a bit more complex and, in some cases, a bit more expensive. STEP 6: EFFICIENT WINDOWSCode: N1102.1 In certain warm climates, the thermal performance of windows has been increased.What it means to you: Heat gain or heat loss from windows causes a significant loss of energy. Windows are rated by U-value, which is the inverse of R-value. The lower the number, the more efficient the window is at blocking heat flow. In climate zones 1 to 4, which are generally hotter in the summer, U-values have decreased, representing an increase in energy efficiency.Solar-heat-gain coefficients (SHGC) measure how well a window blocks heat from sunlight. these standards also have changed. SHGC is expressed by a number between 0 and 1. The smaller the number, the less solar heat is transmitted into a home. In hotter climates (1 to 4), the SHGC requirement has been reduced considerably, which reduces the stress on cooling equipment and overall home operating costs.The 2009 building codes reflect practices that not only increase energy efficiency—air-sealing measures and increased insulation, for example—but also address sustainable building practices, such as moisture control.Other segments of this series:Part 1: Air SealingPart 2: InsulationPart 3: LightingPart 4: Programmable ThermostatsPart 5: Insulating Mass WallsPart 6: Efficient WindowsPart 7: Insulating Mechanical PipesPart 8: Exceeding the Energy CodePart 9: Vapor Retarderslast_img read more
