Suitable replacement RD for Long Haul Trucker?

I have a stock 2013 Long Haul Trucker. Somehow (I don't know how) the rear derailleur cage got bent. I just noticed poor shifting, and discovered it.

I swapped in an old Deore long cage for now, and it works, but it that one was destined for my winter bike.

When I do replace the RD what should I get? The Shimano XT RD-M771 that came as stock doesn't seem to be available in my local shops.

The bike has 26/36/48 in the front and an 11 to 32 cassette.

Here are the specs for the bike:

Deore 9 speed rear derailleur, the Deore M591 SGS. I'm running on on a bike with a triple and 9 speed; it's a pretty decent RD.
