Iman Shumpert was traded along with New York Knicks’ teammate J.R. Smith on January 5th, 2015. The trade moved Shumpert from a bottom feeding Knicks team to a sudden championship contender. Although he didn’t play immediately after being traded due to his recovery from a dislocated shoulder, Iman Shumpert played in 38 games for the Cavs and averaged 7.8 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 1.5 assists per game.

Just look at what he did to Stephen Curry in parts of the Finals and Klay Thompson in basically the whole Finals’ series! If he continues to improve on the defensive end and remain coachable the sky is the limit for Shumpert defensively.
