The Atlanta Hawks made contact with Luol Deng's representatives shortly after free agency opened per a report from CBSSports' Ken Berger. The Clippers and Mavericks also made contact per Berger.

Deng is in Europe and is waiting to see which teams are interested before deciding what visits to take. He may not be in any rush as teams that fall short in the chase for LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony may become interested.

Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski reported earlier this week that Deng is expecting a deal somewhere in the neighborhood of $10-12 million. At that time he was reportedly at the top of Atlanta's wish list.
