The Lakers are now projected to have $36 million in cap space next summer after this move, with max-level players such as Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard set to become free agents in July.

Acquired as a free agent in 2016, Deng appeared in 57 career games (50 starts) for the Lakers, averaging 7.5 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 26.3 minutes.
