Ever since the “Iman Shumpert to Denver for the Nuggets Kenneth Faried” rumor hit a few weeks back, the NBA has been ripe with rumors for possible destinations for Shump.
Talk has been anything from a trade to the Celtics for Rajon Rondo, to one for disgruntled Rockets big man, Omer Asik.
But taking the cap into account and the December 15th deadline for recently signed players, here are some actual possibilities the Knicks have if they want to use Shumpert in a trade. Continue reading
Jordan Crawford, a Celtics bench player, summoning something out of the Kevin Garnett Classless Trash-Talking textbook and took a cheap shot at Carmelo Anthony’s wife following the Knicks loss to the Celtics, Wednesday night.
