Iman Shumpert believes that his offense will improve in coach Derek Fisher's triangle offense.
He's spent the summer strengthening his surgically-repaired left knee. "I know this year, this offense, I’ll have a lot more opportunities to cut and get to the basket," he said, "so I just want to work on the strength in my leg and be able to jump off and be comfortable." Shumpert shot a measly 37.8 percent from the field last season and he faces heavy competition from Tim Hardaway Jr. and J.R. Smith, which takes the shine off his fantasy outlook. Aug 27 - 1:44 PM

Iman Shumpert may be on the trade block due to the Knicks' surfeit of shooting guards, according to

This comes as no surprise since Shumpert was dangled in multiple trade offers last season, and New York already has Tim Hardaway Jr. and J.R. Smith available at the SG position. Shumpert shot just 37.8 percent from the field last season, including 33.3 percent from downtown, which doesn't help his trade value. Teams may also be turned off by the fact that Shumpert has missed 22.6 percent of the Knicks' games during his three-year career.

The Knicks are not interested in dealing Iman Shumpert for draft picks, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

Stein reported that the Knicks were indeed shopping Shumpert for a first-round pick on June 23rd, so perhaps the Knicks and Phil Jackson have had a change of heart. Shump's name has already come up in connection to multiple teams, most notably the Thunder and Clippers.

Marc Stein of confirmed that the Knicks are shopping Iman Shumpert for a first-round pick, and Oklahoma City is interested.

They have been shopping Shumpert for a first-round pick all along. The Thunder seem like they're absolutely going to let Thabo Sefolosha walk, which gives them an opening at shooting guard. As for the Knicks, they don't have a first-round pick and are believed to be high on Tyler Ennis and P.J. Hairston.

The Knicks may be interested in trading Iman Shumpert or cash to acquire a draft pick this summer, according to Moke Hamilton of SportsNet New York.

New York dealt away all of their own picks in recent years, but team president Phil Jackson may not be satisfied watching from the sidelines on June 26. Shumpert is coming off a down season, having averaged only 6.7 points on 37.8 percent shooting this season, including 33.3 percent from downtown. He's still a coveted defender with substantial value around the league, however, and J.R. Smith's obvious desire to start may prompt the Knicks to dangle Shumpert in trade talks.

Iman Shumpert will start in place of Amare Stoudemire (recovery) on Monday vs. the Jazz.

He hasn't topped seven points in any of his previous four, averaging 3.5 points, 1.8 boards, 0.5 steals, 0.3 blocks and 0.5 triples. Shumpert moving into the starting lineup doesn't put him on the radar in most formats.
Mar 31 - 7:35 PM

Iman Shumpert missed all six shots from the field and didn't score on Tuesday, adding two rebounds and two steals.

He had the flu before this game and it didn't seem to affect his playing time with 19 minutes. However, Shumpert had yet another lackluster game on both ends of the floor and he still hasn't looked the same since his ACL tear from two seasons ago.
Mar 26 - 1:24 AM

Knicks coach Mike Woodson is expected Iman Shumpert (flu) to be available against the Lakers Tuesday night.

Shumpert missed Sunday's loss to the Cavs with flu-like symptoms, but it's sounding like he'll be healthy enough to suit up Tuesday night. Shump is averaging 24.9 minutes per game during March, but his per game averages of 6.1 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.1 steals, and 1.1 3-pointers leave something to be desired. While those numbers can make a difference in deeper leagues, standard league owners should have better options available on the waiver wire.
Mar 25 - 1:51 PM

Iman Shumpert will not play vs. the Cavaliers on Sunday due to flu-like symptoms.

It's unclear when he got sick but hopefully this won't spoil any fantasy lineups since Shumpert hasn't been a reliable option all season. J.R. Smith and Tim Hardaway Jr. stand to gain a few minutes in his absence.
Mar 23 - 5:53 PM

Iman Shumpert came off the bench to score 14 points with two 3-pointers, four rebounds, four assists and one steal vs. the Bucks on Saturday.

This was the first time since Feb. 9 that Shump has scored double-digit points, shooting 5-of-12 from the field with a pair of free throws. He's been providing a trickle of threes (0.9), rebounds (3.5), assists (2.5) and steals (1.3) over the past two weeks, and in spite of his poor scoring he's clinging to value in nine-cat leagues. In most instances, however, owners should target someone with higher upside.
Mar 15 - 3:05 PM

Iman Shumpert will start against the Sixers on Monday night.

Tyson Chandler (personal) is out tonight and the Knicks will have to play with little help at center. Shumpert will join Raymond Felton, J.R. Smith, Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire in the first unit. Jeremy Tyler will likely get some minutes in the frontcourt tonight as well. Fantasy owners can start Shumpert at their own risk in a favorable matchup.
Mar 10 - 5:48 PM

Iman Shumpert played 31 minutes off the bench against the Cavs on Saturday, scoring seven points with five boards, three assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

It's the most minutes he's seen since returning from his knee injury on Sunday. In those five games, Shumpert averaged just 4.8 points, 3.4 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.8 triples on 34.5 percent from the field. He's not going to get enough shots or make enough of them to be worth owning in most fantasy formats.
Mar 8 - 11:21 PM

Iman Shumpert (sprained MCL) struggled in his surprise return on Sunday, going 1-of-6 from the field to finish with three points, five rebounds and three turnovers in 20 minutes.

Shumpert hadn't done any cutting or contact work as of Friday, when Mike Woodson suggested he'd miss another week, so it's not surprising to see him have a rough game. Given his 15th-round value in nine-cat leagues this season, even incremental improvement won't be reason enough to scrape him off the waiver wire.
Mar 2 - 3:46 PM

Iman Shumpert will return to the starting lineup Sunday vs. the Bulls.

Shumpert will make a surprise return to the lineup on Sunday as the medical staff has cleared him to play. However, he hasn't had the opportunity to test his knee in game-like situation, so some rust is to be expected. Even when healthy Shumpert hasn't been worth using in 12-team leagues, so owners can take a wait and see approach.
Mar 2 - 12:15 PM

Iman Shumpert (sprained MCL) has begun running in straight lines but he isn't cutting, and coach Mike Woodson said he'll be out "probably ... another week."

It's a mild MCL sprain and the Knicks initially gave Shumpert a two-week timetable, but that may prove to have been overly optimistic. "I’m not going to put a date on [a return]," Shumpert said on Friday. "I still need to do a lot more cutting. A lot more cutting. After that contact. See how it goes." The Knicks' defense was in shambles vs. the Warriors on Friday and they'll welcome back Shumpert once he's healthy, but he hasn't been worth owning in 12-team fantasy leagues this season.
