If Shumpert can return to what he was before the injury then I probably wouldn't trade him for Klay.
But if we're in win now mode Klay Thompson would definitely be an improvement. He's a great shooter who can run off the screens and if contested can put the ball on the floor and attack the basket. His defense isn't good but isn't Copeland or Novak bad.
