Re: Knicks Discuss Shump for Faried (with Nuggets)
Love Faried but I wouldn't have a problem moving him. It's hard to say how he'll adjust when your not running every single time down the floor. Great rebounder, great hustle, has improved his offensive game but he's actually not that great of a defender and reaaallly thrived in Karl's run n gun system. I don't want Denver to have to pay what he'll end up getting.
Better than Shump tho, Nuggets going tank mode which is another reason why I'd love this trade. Defensively AB, Faried is ugly but Faried would eat up all those rebounds and bring that hustle. If your the Knicks I say pull the trigger, and as a Nuggets fan I'd be fine with this deal. Shumpert has potential, could be something eventually.
