Report: Suns Want Shumpert In Package Deal
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The Phoenix Suns are interested in acquiring Knicks guard Iman Shumpert, according to Yahoo! Sports.
In return, the Knicks would receive forward Jared Dudley and a possible future first-round pick, a league source told Yahoo! Reports say the Knicks are not as motivated as the Suns to make a deal.
The 2011 first-round pick of the Knicks suffered an injury during last season’s first-round playoff matchup against the Heat. It was later revealed that the 6-foot-5, 220-pounder tore the ACL and meniscus in his left knee. He underwent major knee surgery in the offseason.
Shumpert is averaging 5.6 points for the Knicks this season. Dudley is averaging 11.8 points and 3.6 rebounds. He has three-years and $12.8 million remaining on his contract.
Yahoo! Sports also reported that Phoenix is trying to deal backup point guard Sebastian Telfair for a second-round pick.
