Deng Adel is no certainty to make an appearance on an NBA floor this season, however, as we’ve seen in the past he has the work ethic and drive to get there. His return is set to hinge on how he performs in the NBA G-League. What now for Adel? After working his way onto Cleveland’s roster last season and playing 19 games, Adel was signed by the Brooklyn Nets in the off-season. Sadly though, he was waived in mid-October, meaning he will most likely have to play through the G League to make an NBA roster.
