Asked about Shved’s future as a Knick, Fisher said, “I’d say he hasn’t done anything to hurt those chances by the way he’s played.’’
A penetrating force, Shved averaged 14.8 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.6 assists with the Knicks. “I feel great over here,’’ Shved said. “Great guys, coaches. I see the coach, he trusts me when I’m on the court. Great organization. A lot of guys want to be here. “They gave me a chance when I came here. I played minutes in Minnesota my rookie year, a little bit in Philly. But here they trusted me more than anywhere.”
With three games remaining, Shved rejoined he squad and made his first road trip since the injury. He will rehab with the club during the two-game Orlando-Atlanta jaunt. “I hope next year I can stay here,’’ Shved said before the Knicks beat the Magic, 80-79, on Saturday night. “My agent will do his work summertime but I want to stay here. “We had a lot of problems and injuries,’’ Shved added. “Everything will change next year and I want to be part of it.’’

When the Rockets dealt big guard Alexey Shved and two future second-rounders for point guard Pablo Prigioni at the trade deadline, the club did so believing the Russian likely is planning a return to Europe next season, according to an NBA source.
“I don’t know who said this,’’ Shved said regarding European aspirations. “But I’ve never said this. I’m not thinking about that. I want to stay here. “I’m not thinking about [free agency],’’ added Shved, who won a bronze medal on the 2012 Russian Olympic Team. “I still have this season. The next year I’m going to be a free agent, and that’s my agent’s job. I just want to finish this season in great shape and win a couple more games.’’
Shved, 26, received scant playing time in Houston, and the Rockets didn’t see a future with him. Whatever he had been plotting, Shved denies Europe is on his mind now. In fact, he told The Post he hopes his future is as a New Yorker.
The Knicks traded for Shved because they saw a fit for the triangle offense. “We definitely see the potential and his ability to play with our team and operate well within our format,’’ Fisher said. “He’s a good ballhandler and good passer and he can get to the rim and he’s pretty capable shooting.”
Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey announced today that the team has acquired K.J. McDaniels and Pablo Prigioni in trades with the New York Knicks and Philadelphia 76ers. In exchange for McDaniels, the Rockets sent Isaiah Canaan and a 2015 second round pick to Philadelphia. Houston held the lesser of the 2015 Minnesota Timberwolves and Denver Nuggets second round picks, and will convey it to Philadelphia as part of the deal. In exchange for Prigioni, the Rockets sent Alexey Shved and their 2017 and 2019 second round picks to New York.

“One of the underrated pickups of the year I think will end up being their deal where they brought in Corey Brewer and Alexey Shved,” Dave Joerger said. “That’s right in their wheelhouse. Corey is a guy from right down the road (Portland, Tenn.) that I love a lot. I think he is going to help them, unfortunately. Alexey Shved is a good playmaker and a perfect fit for that system. I think that is a move that didn’t draw the attention a Josh Smith will and Rajon Rondo and guys like that. Everybody’s trying to load up.”
On Friday he sent Alexey Shved to the Houston Rockets in exchange for the Rockets’ 2015 second-round pick and Ronny Turiaf from the Minnesota Timberwolves and the rights to Spanish League player Sergei Lishouk. The Sixers will waive Turiaf. Lishouk, 32, will never make their roster. The team is expected to trade his rights at some point.

Philadelphia sends guard Alexey Shved to Houston and receives Houston’s 2015 second round pick and the rights to Serhiy Lishchuk.
In the deal, the Rockets will send Troy Daniels to the Minnesota Timberwolves along with the Sacramento Kings 2015 2nd Round Pick (protected for picks 50-60), Houston’s 2016 2nd Round Pick (protected for picks 31-45) and cash considerations.
