Rumor Round-up: Mostly Fluff
Few rumors flying around today. Here’s the summary
Shumpert for Reddick - still don’t see how it works since the money doesn’t match. Most current report says “no legs” to the trade.
Knicks Interested in Jermaine O’Neil - If it’s for Shumpert, then the deal works money wise. Would I do it? No chance. Jermaine has been playing well recently, but with Sheed expected to be back any day now… no need to make this deal. (Source: Chris Broussard)
Shumpert - Dudley Deal - doubt it for the same reason Reddick won’t happen.. money doesn’t match and in order to make it match.. the players that would be involved make no sense.
I believe those are the one floating out there.
Honestly, I think the Knicks hold tight at the deadline. They wanted to see how much they could get back for Shumpert by putting some feelers out there and not much is popping up.
But, obviously… anything can happen with Grunwald running the show. The guy did pull Tyson Chandler out of nowhere.
UPDATE: Another rumor came through - STAT & Shump for Josh Smith? I can’t see Atlanta saying yes to that deal.
