Knicks hope to trade for point guardPosted by Inside Hoops
The New York Knicks are 20-33 this season, and not getting much from point guard Raymond Felton (10.3 ppg, 5.8 apg on 40% shooting and just below 30% from three-point range). They are reportedly looking to make a move. Here’s ESPN.com reporting:
The Knicks and Clippers have been discussing a deal centered on sending Iman Shumpert and Raymond Felton to Los Angeles in exchange for Darren Collison and Reggie Bullock, sources confirm.
In order to make the deal work financially, other players may have to be involved. One name that has been discussed is Clippers small forward Jared Dudley.
Talks at this point are not in advanced stages, with one source describing the deal as “a possibility.” The teams have been talking since Friday.
A source with knowledge of the talks told ESPN that the Clippers have been reluctant to part with Bullock, their first-round draft pick from last year, who is being asked to play a larger role with starting guard J.J. Redick lost indefinitely to a back injury. Adding Shumpert would help somewhat, as he would slide into Redick’s starting role and allow Sixth Man of the Year candidate Jamal Crawford to go back to his reserve role.
