After firing their general manger Chris Grant on Thursday, the Cleveland Cavaliers may not be done making wholesale changes to their team.

According to Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders, the Cavaliers are open to trading everybody on their roster, excluding Kyrie Irving, before the NBA trade deadline on Thursday, Feb. 20. And that means former Bulls All-Star forward Luol Deng could be on the move once again.

A change of scenery could come as good news for Deng, who is reportedly unhappy in Cleveland. The veteran described the team as a "mess" to his close friends and he has little to no interest in re-signing with the Cavaliers, according to ESPN's Mark Stein.

The Cavaliers are 6-10 since acquiring Deng and currently sit in 12th place in the Eastern Conference.

Deng is averaging 15.3 PPG and 5.0 RPG in 14 games with the Cavs.
