The arrival of Luol Deng following a trade from the Chicago Bulls has already changed the starting lineup, but how will it affect the rest of the rotation?

Deng has led the NBA in minutes the past two seasons and isn't afraid to take on a large workload. Given the Cavs' lack of talent at the small forward position, he may get just that.

Here's a breakdown of what the new rotation should look like with Deng, including playing time for each guy and a couple rookies finding a new home in Canton.
