According to Zach Lowe of ESPN, the Wolves are among "several teams" who are interested in acquiring Iman Shumpert from the Cavaliers.
Shumpert hasn't lived up to expectations after signing a four-year, $40 million deal prior to last season, as he shot just 37.4 percent from the field and 29.5 percent from deep in 2015-16. The report adds that the Cavs won't salary-dump Shumpert for nothing, though they could significantly improve their tax situation if they find a suitor for the SG. His upside isn't great, so there's no need to stash him. On a side note, Zach LaVine's owners have nothing to worry about. Oct 21 - 10:17 AM

Iman Shumpert is now expected to come off the bench this season.

J.R. Smith agreed to a four-year deal with the Cavs on Friday and should be back in the starting lineup. The Cavaliers don't have a lot of depth in their backcourt, so maybe Shumpert can see more than the 24.4 minutes per game he saw last season. With that said, he doesn't have much upside and is only worth a look in very deep leagues.
Oct 15 - 10:02 AM

LeBron James, Kevin Love, Chris Andersen, Iman Shumpert and DeAndre Liggins will start on Saturday.

We will see some Kyrie Irving tonight, but he will be light on minutes. Shumpert could handle the ball a little tonight, but we want to see more Kay Felder.
Oct 8 - 7:34 PM

Iman Shumpert ran with the first unit during Tuesday's practice with J.R. Smith still working on his contract situation with the Cavs.

Tyronn Lue said that Shumpert will be filling in for Smith until Smith's contract situation is resolved, which means he could be Cleveland's starting two-guard if the Cavs are unsuccessful in retaining Smith. Still, most reports indicate that Smith's signing with the Cavs is simply a matter of when and not if, so there's not much reason to waste a draft pick on Shumpert in standard formats.

The Cavs are "concerned" about Iman Shumpert, according to Terry Pluto of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Pluto's video report focuses on Shumpert's poor play on the court last season rather than his recent DUI. Pluto also cited Shump's injury history as a factor in Cleveland's thinking, and the Georgia Tech product will have plenty to prove in 2016-17 after signing a four-year, $40M deal last summer to remain with the Cavs. As for his fantasy value, Shumpert's chance to be a factor in standard formats is dependent upon J.R. Smith's potential return.

Iman Shumpert was arrested for suspicion of DUI back in August.

No court date has been set yet, but any conviction or guilty plea involving a DUI usually results in a league suspension. The Cavaliers have "discussed" the situation with Shumpert, but the team won't provide a comment. Cavs reporter Jason Lloyd said the arrest was for marijuana and not alcohol, and Shumpert admitted that he was smoking to the officer. Assuming J.R. Smith re-signs with the Cavs, Shumpert will be returning to a similar role with minutes in the 20s off the bench for Cleveland, meaning his fantasy value will be limited to deeper leagues.

Iman Shumpert (sore knee) contributed to the Cavs' impressive bench effort on Wednesday, chipping in two points, six boards, two assists and one steal in 18 minutes.

Cleveland's bench had a decisive advantage tonight, aided by strong games from Matthew Dellavedova, Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye, all of whom did more than is shown in the boxscore. Shumpert isn't a viable DFS option, however, having averaged just 5.8 points on 37.4 percent shooting this season. He's struggled so badly that Detroit even shifted Andre Drummond onto him defensively when the Cavs went small, allowing Drummond to stay closer to the paint.
Apr 20 - 11:03 PM

Iman Shumpert (knee) will see his normal workload in Game 1 vs. the Pistons on Sunday.

Coach Tyronn Lue said that Shumpert is feeling "great," so he shouldn't have any limitations. Shumpert averaged 5.8 points, 3.8 boards, 1.7 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.8 3-pointers during the regular season, so most fantasy owners will want to look elsewhere.
Apr 17 - 1:33 PM

Iman Shumpert (knee) will be ready for Game 1 vs. the Pistons on Sunday.

He missed the final three games of the regular season, but the Cavs were probably just being cautious. Shumpert averaged 5.8 points, 3.8 boards, 1.7 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.8 3-pointers this season, so he isn't a great option in fantasy.
Apr 15 - 1:25 PM

Iman Shumpert will miss the final two regular season games with inflammation and soreness in his left knee.

Shumpert had his troublesome knee drained on Sunday, but he's expected to be available as soon as the postseason begins. Without Shumpert, J.R. Smith—who has been white-hot over the last four games—and Richard Jefferson should see an increase in minutes.
Apr 11 - 12:17 PM

Iman Shumpert (knee) is out against the Bulls on Saturday night.

He has left knee soreness and this isn't the first time he's sat out. The Cavs are likely just being careful with Shumpert after a 35-minute game on Wednesday. Richard Jefferson and J.R. Smith should play a little more.
Apr 9 - 7:51 PM

Iman Shumpert started Wednesday's game in place of LeBron James (rest) but he scored only four points with three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 35 minutes of action.

Shumpert hadn't done much in four previous starts this season, averaging a mere 4.8 points on 26.1 percent shooting, but he at least added 3.5 dimes, 1.3 steals and 1.0 blocks. LeBron is likely to return vs. Chicago on Saturday and there's simply no reason to touch Shump.
Apr 6 - 10:15 PM

Iman Shumpert will start for LeBron James (rest) on Wednesday against the Pacers.

The last time LeBron rested, Shumpert played 35 minutes with 11 points, three rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks. He should get a similar workout with minutes and might be a decent low-end play for today. His upside isn't the greatest, though.
Apr 6 - 6:08 PM

Iman Shumpert will return to the bench for Thursday's game against the Nets.

He got a spot-start on Tuesday with LeBron James taking the night off, but he'll return to a 20-minute role off the bench tonight, which isn't enough time for him to produce in most settings.
Mar 31 - 6:57 PM

Iman Shumpert (knee) started in place of LeBron James (rest) on Tuesday vs. the Rockets, scoring 11 points with three boards, two assists, two blocks, one steal and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

He looked great tonight and the minutes were a surprise even with LeBron out. He did shoot just 4-of-14 from the field and will likely return to the bench on Thursday vs. the Nets, so he still belongs on the wire in most leagues. This was just his second game in March with double-digit points.
