A native of Sudan who left Duke University after one year to enter the NBA draft in 2004, Deng, 27, has played his entire career with the Bulls.
Deng, who is the Bulls' third-highest-paid player at more than $13 million a year, paid $672,000 in 2004 for the 2,511-square-foot town home, which is in a neighborhood that historically has been popular with Bulls players.
This is not the first time Deng has listed the town home. In 2010, he had it on the market for six months for $639,000.
Built in 2000, the town home has two full baths, two half-baths, a kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, a large master suite with custom closets and a lower level with a bathroom and lots of storage.
Deng continues to own a 7,014-square-foot, single-family house elsewhere in Northbrook, which he purchased in 2009 for $2.4 million.
Constantine Grapsas is the listing agent.
Eschmeyer sells in Streeterville
Retired professional basketball player Evan Eschmeyer has sold his three-bedroom, 2,122-square-foot condominium unit on the 14th floor of a Streeterville tower for $975,000.
A standout during his years at Northwestern University, Eschmeyer, 37, played in the NBA from 1999 until 2003. He now is a private investor.
"We absolutely loved living on Pearson Street in Streeterville. It was an unbelievable neighborhood, and we enjoyed it very much," Eschmeyer told Elite Street. "But with 5-year-old twins, it was time for a lifestyle change. It was time for us to move out of the condo setting."
Eschmeyer and his family moved to Boulder, Colo.
The seven-room condo that Eschmeyer sold has three baths, park and lake views, a marble bathroom and a large balcony. Eschmeyer bought the unit in 2005 for $1.16 million.

Built in 1898, the 14-room Greystone-style mansion that Williams purchased has five full baths, two half-baths, a media room, a Christopher Peacock kitchen, and wood and marble floors.
Williams also owns a three-level town home in University Village that he bought in 2004 for $775,000.
Williams declined to comment on the transaction.
Crain's Chicago Business first reported on the purchase.
