Nuggets Faried for Shumpert?

Quote:
Talks between the Knicks and Nuggets centered around a deal that would send Iman Shumpert to Denver for forward Kenneth Faried have intensified in recent days, the Daily News has learned.

According to a league source, no deal is imminent although the struggling Knicks feel they need to make a move to bolster their banged up front court.

Tyson Chandler is out at least one month after breaking his leg last week while both Amar'e Stoudemire and Kenyon Martin have been placed on a minute's restriction because if their health.

Shumpert, a former first pick, has fallen out of favor with both head coach Mike Woodson and owner James Dolan. And with J.R. Smith promoted to the starting lineup at shooting guard for Wednesday's game against the Atlanta Hawks, Shumpert will likely lose his starting spot once Chandler returns.

Faried, a native of Newark, N.J., is an undersized power forward but his work rate makes him one of the NBA's top rebounders.

The Nuggets have been a long time trading partner of the Knicks dating back to Dolan's decision to move Marcus Camby for Antonio McDyess. Of course, the Knicks most famous deal with Denver was the blockbuster deal to acquire Carmelo Anthony.

The Knicks considered signing free agent forward Louis Amundson last weekend before he signed with New Orleans on Monday. In order to sign Amundson the Knicks would have been required to release a player but elected to pass.

Seems like a fairly fair trade.

Too bad. Nuggets fans will be pissed. One of the best rebounder/energy guys in the league on a rookie contract, for another run of the mill guard who is a good defender, ok on offense.

Am I the only guy who doesn't get why is a thing? Isn't Faried twice the player Shump is, plus he hasn't had to get an acl surgery yet?

Shumpert is overrated imo. I would take Faried over him.

Can we somehow snag Denver's 2016 pick so they won't be able to pull the pick swap shit with NYK when time comes? Since we own the Knicks pick and all .

Meh. I hate it for Denver if true. NY doesn't have a pick that would make it fair. I think they have a 1st in 2018, but who knows if it's high or low.

That said, New York Daily News source is probably Spike Lee, so Ill believe it when I see it.
