No matter the outcome of Wednesday night's matchup between the Bulls and Cavaliers, everyone knew there would be an emotional postgame embrace between Luol Deng and his old teammates.

Deng struggled in his first game against his old team, scoring 11 points and grabbing five rebounds in the Bulls' 98-87 win over the Cavaliers.

After the game, Deng embraced Jimmy Butler, who credits Deng with much of his success in the early portion of his career. He also shared a special moment with long-time teammate and close friend Joakim Noah, who did not speak to media members for days after Deng was traded.

Deng, an unrestricted free agent after this season, won't play the Bulls again in the regular season, as the two teams have already met all four times.
