Knicks willing to give up Iman Shumpert for Kenneth Faried

Published Add your comment

According to ESPN's Mark Stein, the New York Knicks are attempting to re-engage the Denver Nuggets in a deal with a framework that would including sending Kenneth Faried to New York in exchange for Iman Shumpert.

Denver has denied Faried’s availability thus far, but insiders have suggested the Nuggets are simply attempting to build up trade value for the young forward.

But with the trade deadline on February 20 and both teams looking to take full advantage of their present assets. Faried is signed through next season, and then will be a restricted free agent. Shumpert has the exact same situation.

The Knicks have been beat up in the paint and need someone to play alongside Tyson Chandler. Meanwhile the Nuggets could use Shumpert for his skills as an outside perimeter defender, who can hit a three, like an ersatz Andre Iguodala. 

It’s not known how serious the conversations are at this point, but it is one to keep an eye and could come to fruition before the deadline next week.
