Luol Deng has retired from the NBA since October of 2019, however he is still getting paid by the Los Angeles Lakers.

As Lakers Daily reports, Deng is the sixth highest paid player on the Lakers roster this season.

Deng had agreed to a four-year, $72M contract with the Lakers back in the summer of 2016.

Even though the Lakers asked the NBA to waive and stretch Deng’s contract, that didn’t happen and the defending champions still owe money to the retired forward.

Deng has to receive $18M by the Lakers through the 2022 season.
