One scenario to keep an eye on here, though, is the possibilty of a three-team deal also involving the Hawks and point guard Jeff Teague. Atlanta has all of its first-round picks in the next four drafts and could conceivably send one to Toronto to satisfy the Raptors' demand for a future draft pick. League sources say a scenario in which Teague ends up in Toronto, Shumpert goes to Atlanta and Lowry winds up in New York has been discussed. Another scenario could have Teague ending up in New York. The conversations are believed to be preliminary and have not reached an advanced stage. ESPN.com

Iman Shumpert may be back in the Knicks lineup for Monday night’s game against the Bucks. Shumpert, who has missed the past two contests after coming out of Tuesday’s win over Boston with a sprained left shoulder, said he will make his return Monday if he feels well enough to get through screens. The Knicks have listed him as “a game-time decision’’ after he went through the morning shootaround at Bradley Center. Shumpert hadn’t missed a game this season before the injury. New York Post

The Cavs were supposed to challenge for a playoff spot, but not to worry. All the losing isn’t keeping them from having a good time. During their trip to New York, several players enjoyed themselves immensely the night before the game against the Knicks, partying into the wee hours with J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert and 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick, and other NFL players. Their late-night/early morning carousing played a factor when they didn’t even try in their blow-out loss to the Knicks.

Whatever the problem is, it doesn't seem to be confidence. In last week's game against Brooklyn, Shumpert took six of the Knicks' first 11 shots and finished the game with five points. "If field-goal attempts are a measure of confidence, he's not lacking," said ESPN analyst Doris Burke, after Shumpert misfired on a heavily contested three-pointer with eight seconds left on the shot clock in that game. The more likely culprit is the lack of synergy between point guard Raymond Felton and Shumpert, who usually serves as Felton's fifth and final offensive option within the starting five. In 697 minutes together this season, Felton has assisted Shumpert just 10 times, according to NBA.com. Only Indiana point guard George Hill and shooting guard Lance Stephenson have connected less.

Knicks guard Iman Shumpert suffered a sprained right shoulder in the first quarter of Tuesday's game against the Boston Celtics and did not return. The severity of the injury was unclear. Coach Mike Woodson said after the Knicks' 114-88 win that he wasn't sure how long Shumpert would be out for. ESPN.com

Playing with passion and determination Friday, Anthony poured through a career-high and Knicks and Garden record 62 points to lead the Knicks to a 125-96 pounding of the Bobcats. “It was jaw-dropping,” forward Iman Shumpert said. “We didn’t know what to do, just get your popcorn and watch.” New York Post

If Iman Shumpert’s New Year’s resolution was to get back to be an athletic two-way player then maybe the Knicks can still make something of this season. At the very least, the 2014 Knicks looked nothing like the Knicks from the final three months of 2013. And the same can be said of Shumpert. “He saved us,” Carmelo Anthony said. “He saved the day. He was back to the old Shump that we fell in love with.” New York Daily News
