Luol Deng is a winning player, but whether or not he's a winning investment is what the Bulls are trying to determine. In the four games the Bulls have played since losing Derrick Rose to a knee injury. Deng has averaged 25 points, 6 assists and 5.5 rebounds, while shooting 54.5 percent from the field.
