Regarding Shumpert, a source said many teams "still like Shump," and the Knicks need front-court help even though Tyson Chandler is planning to return before the New Year (via CBS Sports). Kenneth Faried remains their best option, especially because of the similar price point with Shumpert, but will the Denver Nuggets trade him? "I don't think (Nuggets GM Tim Connelly) will move Faried for him," the source said. "Faried is more valuable, and there's no reason to make a move before they get (Javale) McGee back."

There have already been rumors about Kenneth Faried trades twice early this season, but the team is not shopping their young big. Faried, however, is one of the hottest names on the roster, so expect to hear more of this as the season progresses. Denver Post

He's hardly the only one who is likely on the move, as third-year Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried has sparked much discourse early on because of his fluid situation. With general manager Tim Connelly having taken over for the departed Masai Ujiri (now in Toronto), Faried's known desire for a huge payday via extension next summer was enough to inspire the decision maker to test his market value around the league as a way of considering all his options. With teams such as the Raptors, Sacramento Kings, Milwaukee Bucks, Cleveland Cavaliers and Denver Nuggets struggling, there will be many inquiries made between now and the time when the trade deadline buzzer sounds.

According to sources, Knicks general manager Steve Mills has spoken to several teams about Shumpert, looking for frontcourt help. But those conversations are preliminary and the Knicks’ long-rumored interest in Denver’s rebounding power forward Kenneth Faried, who has been shopped since October, went nowhere, according to sources. When asked if the Knicks talks with Denver were completely dead, a source close to the situation told The Post, “They were never alive.’’ New York Post

Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried is simply trying to tune out the noise. On Wednesday, his name cropped up in trade rumors with New York newspapers reporting that the Knicks and Nuggets were engaged in talks regarding a swap of Faried for up-and-coming guard Iman Shumpert. "No comment," Faried said. "No comment on all of that. I just play basketball and do my job, and that's it." Denver Post

Asked whether he was worried about the impact the rumors might have on Faried, Shaw said, "A little bit." "He's young, and I think he's impressionable," Shaw said. "As a player, sometimes you take it personal and it can affect you. I haven't been around him enough to know how mentally tough he is to deal with something like this, or when it's happened before. But any kind of assistance I can give him to calm him down, I want to be there to do that for him." Denver Post

Nuggets coach Brian Shaw expected to talk with Faried about it all prior to Wednesday night’s game against the Lakers. The coach is no stranger to trade talk and being traded himself. Shaw was traded four times in his career. Shaw called the Faried-to-New York trade rumor “exactly what it is; it’s a rumor.” Denver Post
