Basketball can help Britain - Deng

NBA star Luol Deng believes London should keep the Olympic Basketball arena after the 2012 Games instead of dismantling it as he believes the sport can help Britain "with a lot of things" and will give the "youth" more options.

The Chicago Bulls and Great Britain small forward feels the arena could be used for something positive after the Games and says there are a lot of kids who can use basketball "to get to somewhere they can't get to without it".

Deng was speaking after GB's overtime defeat by Australia at the Olympic test event and believes the national side are making "good progress".
