Heat and Luol Deng are still significantly apart on salary.
This will certainly hold up talks for a while as the team will likely explore other avenues while keeping Deng on the line a little longer. Someone is going to have to make a compromise here or he'll be scooped up by another team soon.ANALYST: Howard Bender
