Will ex-star Chicago Bulls Luol Deng be the dynamite that sparks the Cleveland Cavaliers to become contenders this year?

One would think so if he has a dynamic game as he did in Tuesday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers in which Deng scored a team and game high of 27 points. Deng went ballistic going five for five behind the three point line. It seemed that he sparked his 76ers team mates to play their best, noting that Anderson Varejao had a double double puting up 18 points and pulling down 18 rebounds.

Guard Dion Waiters also added 17 points to help the Cleveland Cavaliers win on the road.

There seems to be a lot of potential for this young Cavaliers team with the aquisition of Deng. But will the Cavaliers add some additional pieces alongside Deng to further help the team?

Mike Brown would probably be delighted if Cleveland added some depth.
