Iman Shumpert Could Be Headed To Phoenix In Trade For Steve Nash

Former Georgia Tech standout Iman Shumpert could be the headlining piece in a package that the New York Knicks send to the Phoenix Suns in a sign and trade deal for Steve Nash.

Shumpert is currently rehabbing from an ACL injury that he suffered in the first-round of the playoffs against the Miami Heat. He was selected by the Knicks with the 17th pick in the 2011 draft and settled into a valuable piece for the Knicks down the stretch.

Reports indicate that the Knicks are going to offer Nash somewhere between a $27-30 million package for three years which is comparable to the offer he received from Toronto. The Knicks don't really want to trade Shumpert but will if that is what it takes to acquire Nash.
