    Deore rear derailleur isn't compatible with the SRAM shifters. I'm afraid you'll need to change one or the other.

    if you had a Sram rear mech you need a sram rear mech.

    sram and shimano rear mechs are not interchangeable.

    but as you have bought a deore mech you may as well buy a Shimano shifter.
