According to Sheridan Hoops, The camp of Iman Shumpert has grown frustrated the way Iman has been developed in the Knicks rotation since his return from injury. I hope all this is not true and Iman is a happy camper in the Orange an Blue. If you read this article from Sheridan Hoops, it sounds as if the Knicks are not using him the proper way and Iman and his handlers are not happy about it.
“There are major concerns (from people close to Shumpert) over how the Knicks are developing him,” a source from another team told SheridanHoops.com, speaking on the condition of anonymity.
“They feel he’s being played out of position (at small forward) and his confidence is suffering because of it. They understand the team is having success and it has to be the right deal, but they’d prefer Iman in another situation… And soon.”
If New York decides they need to move Shump, then they better think long and hard on his value and what they expect in return. A quality power forward with toughness to split time with Amar’e? A back-up point guard to help Raymond , since J-Kidd and PP have not played well the past month or so? The Knicks have a lot to think about up until Thursday’s trade deadline approaches, but it all starts here with Shump. What does he want?
