Luol Deng and Shaun Livingston both went early in the draft, though
Livingston moved up more than expected, going
to the Clippers at #4, and Deng, who predicated his decision on being
assured of being a Top 5 pick, did not go in the Top 5 after all, ending
up with Chicago with a trade for the 7th pick. He was originally
drafted by the Suns, who gave him up to clear cash to make a run at a big-time
free agent. The Suns had three first round picks and gave them all up to
free up cap room.
Chris Duhon also went to the Bulls in the second round.
