Analysis: Deng's production has declined from his All-Star seasons in Chicago, but he should add a veteran presence to a young Lakers' roster following Kobe Bryant's retirement. The 31-year-old could also provide a bridge at the small forward position in the event No. 2 overall pick Brandon Ingram isn't ready to make an immediate impact.
