I think it's still pg and pf where the team has to improve. Teams want ray Felton to be a primary offensive option. If they can get the Knicks to play a Felton/chandler 2 man game they'll be thrilled.
What are those right players?

Shumpert for Klay Thompson.

Would you do it ? Would the Knicks do it ? Would the Warriors do it ?

Nope. And I like Thompson but We need Shumpert's defense. We already can't stop guards penetrating as it is. Thompson would help us offensively though.

Klay Thompson would surely help us more than Shumpert this season.

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.

If Shumpert were playing defense or scoring or doing anything of value, it would be a tougher call. But current Shumpert for current Klay Thompson? Absolutely.

I wouldn't exactly call Klay a great shooter, he is very inconsistent thus why his fg% is so poor for his career so far.

Plus he isn't a good defender.

He is a great shooter. One of the best in the league at coming off screens and shooting the ball. His 3-pt% is 39%,that's very good,especially considering that he takes a lot of contested ones too.
Of course he isn't as good spot up shooter as Novak but players like Novak are easy to stop while Klay would give another dimension to our offense.

Right now Klay Thompson is much better than Shumpert. I know he's coming back off an injury but Shump hasn't given us anything so far. No offense,no defense. And I agree with you that we need to send him back to SG.

39% is good, slightly above avrage....also he is dismal in 2 point shot at 44%.

When he can get his fg% above 41%, then we can talk about his great shooting....and his ts% is only .534, pretty pathetic for a guy who was touted as a shooter.

he's nothing more than a decent three point shooter at this point in his career.

I expect him to improve, but right now, he is subpar as a shooter.

He's a much better shooter than Shumpert at any rate.

Klay Thompson is a greally good shooter. He just takes some bad shots. His jumper is better than anyone on our team not named Novak. That said, I wouldnt make that deal.

Yea but we're talking about a guy who only played 12 games all year and was thrust in to the starting lineup in the middle of the season. Not exactly fair dontchathink?

I guess Tyson Chandler is Wilt Chamberlain then. That's reassuring!

Wilt did more than that though.

It's just hilarious to hear about all these great scorers that can't even crack 44%.
