Alex Kennedy: Kyrie Irving has talked to some veteran role players to gauge their interest in joining Nets. I’m hearing Irving talked to Iman Shumpert to see if he’d want to join BKN. Irving and Shumpert played together in CLE and won title in 2016. Shumpert has interest from other teams too.
According to multiple sources familiar with the negotiations, the trade that would have sent Lowry to the Knicks in December of 2013 was vetoed at the last minute by MSG Chairman James Dolan. At the time the Knicks were prepared to trade several players, including Metta World Peace and Iman Shumpert, plus a 2018 first-round pick to Toronto. The Raptors were mostly interested in the first-round pick but Dolan, having been burned twice in two previous deals with Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri, got cold feet.
With the first-round pick, the Raptors drafted Jakob Poeltl, who was included in the deal for Kawhi Leonard last summer. So if you’re scoring at home, the Knicks’ acquisition of Bargnani helped the Raptors trade for one of the league’s top players and an NBA Finals berth. The sting from that trade was still fresh when Dolan pulled the offer for Lowry off the table in December 2013. Three months earlier, Dolan had replaced Grunwald with Steve Mills and was going to have the final say on any major moves.
Mark Berman: ICYMI @Iman Shumpert had nothing to do w/ Kevin Durant’s injury. At the time he wasn’t certain: “I was hoping I didn’t stand under him when he shot his shot. I didn’t feel him step on my foot.Even in times of war u don’t want to hurt another guy..Off the court,great guy”
Later, Fizdale discovered that Harden – along with several other Rockets players, including Chris Paul – had bolted the court well before the end of their blowout victory over the Knicks. Only one player – former Knick Iman Shumpert – remained on the bench. No matter how you slice it, leaving early to get a headstart on Friday night plans – no matter what they were — is disrespectful to teammates on the court and the opponent. But Fizdale said he didn’t care. “I don’t really have an opinion on it,” the coach said. “That’s something you have to ask the other team how they felt about that. Our guys, I know, were focused on the game and playing hard.”
Three craziest teammates? Channing Frye: “Stephon Marbury, Shump (Iman Shumpert) and Larry Sanders.” (Why?) “Steph was crazy just because he is uber-smart and he’s always trying to find the bigger, better thing. He has a huge New York personality. He’s a great guy. Absolutely a great guy, great teammate. He just is super smart and is always trying to change the game. Who was next? Shump? Shump is wild because he is so musically and artistically inclined. He just cannot conform to regular society roles. And I respect that, but he’s that way every single day. If everything’s quiet, Shump has to be loud. If everything is loud, Shump would be quiet. He just can’t do it, but I respect him for it because he’s like that every single day. And then Larry is crazy because he is crazy. I don’t know him that well because he was only here for a short time, but, you know, he’s up there.”
Jonathan Feigen: Shumpert starting with Gordon sitting out (rest) for Rockets vs. Grizzlies. D’Antoni said would have been House, but needs him to play longer minutes at the four with Tucker playing backup center with Faried (sore knee) out. Nene available in an emergency.
Jonathan Feigen: Rockets will have Chris Paul sit out tonight vs. Suns for rest. Eric Gordon would start with James Harden in the backcourt. The other starter? Green? Rivers? Shumpert? Or is it time for another House call?
Mark Berman: Mike D’Antoni on road wins in Boston & Toronto: “It confirmed we’re starting to round into shape a little bit.We’re getting good chemistry between the guys. We’re settling into a rotation & a lineup that we like.” (On Kenneth Faried & Iman Shumpert returning Friday?) “I’m hoping” pic.twitter.com/pq8THxswqr
Rockets forward Iman Shumpert planned to begin running to test his sore right knee after sitting out the Rockets’ first two games after the All-Star break. Shumpert, who played just 14 games last season because of knee surgery, said the soreness came from ramping back up this season. “I just need to run and do stuff,” Shumpert said. “I haven’t really tested it out now. We’ve been doing strength work. I’ll be able to do a little running (Sunday and Monday), see how it responds and go from there.
“I don’t think it was a certain play that happened. I sat out a year. Just an accumulation of minutes. Don’t get me wrong. I can still play through it. Looking at the long haul, being traded to this team, knowing what we’re up against and what we have to do come playoff time, I have to be able to play through. If I’m able to take some time now to get it all right, using the All-Star break for those days and taking these days, will do me a lot of good in strengthening it and making sure my form is right,”
Alykhan Bijani: James Harden on Iman Shumpert; “Shump is a vet who can help us defensively, ball-handling, shooting. He’s been playing very well this season. Once he gets here and gets a couple of practices in, let’s go.” #Rockets
Jason Jones: Making the team better didn’t erase the emotions of seeing Shump and JJ leave. WCS: “Who’s the first people that you hear when you walk into our locker room? Shump and J.J. That energy is gone and it ain’t going to come back. … It’s going to be weird.”
Kayte Christensen: Spoke with Iman Shumpert’s father when I was leaving the arena tonight. He said he’s sad to go. He really liked it here. Brought up something I forgot. It was D’Antoni who drafted him in New York. Wish @Iman Shumpert nothing but the best. It was a pleasure sir. #theScoresisHERE
Blake Ellington: Iman Shumpert: “I told them they’re still the Scores. I can’t go do the Scores thing over there (Houston), but it’s still some Purple Talk over here man and they know that. There’s a chemistry that was birthed here that I don’t think leaves now that I leave.”
Jonathan Feigen: Lots of talk about the Rockets adding Shumpert’s defense. Not to be overlooked is this from Austin Rivers: “He’s definitely an entertaining guy. I’m excited for the conversations he and Gerald are going to have, that we can all be a part of. It’ll be fun.”
The Rockets will save $6.3M towards the luxury tax and now have a tax bill of $6.1M. The amount could decrease based on the $1.5M of bonuses in the contract of Clint Capela. In addition, the Rockets will save $15.6M next season by trading the Brandon Knight contract to Cleveland. Houston is now $4M above the tax threshold after the addition of Iman Shumpert, Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin IV. The Rockers will inherit the bird rights of Shumpert.
Noel Harris: Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni didn’t speak directly about Iman Shumpert, but he did discuss NBA trading. “It’s part of the business. … That doesn’t make it any easier on the guys who get uprooted and have to go to a new place, especially if you have a family and kids.”
Iman Shumpert: #piecedelafoutupie out now!!! Tough loss but we’ll bounce back in Toronto #thescoresishere
Kings guard Iman Shumpert was stopped from going into the Portland locker room by arena and Trail Blazers security after Sacramento’s 115-107 victory Monday night. Shumpert apparently was angry at Blazers center Jusuf Nurkic, who set a hard screen in the second half. “Some stuff needed to be between me and him, a conversation between two men,” Shumpert said. “Some stuff happened out there that we needed to have a conversation about. That’s it.”
Iman Shumpert: I apologize to the fans if I made a scene. Wasn’t my intention but this 2019 stuff is all about a “story”. Don’t let that distract you from this young Scores ball club getting a great victory against a tested Blazers team #theScoresisHERE #purpletalk
David F.: Do you believe the Kings are likely to retain Iman Shumpert after his contract ends? Jason Jones: @David F. I think a few things work in Shump’s favor to return: 1. His teammates love him and the Kings seem to really value that. 2. He’s already a part of the culture that has improved. 3. I think his value to the Kings (along with the intangibles) might be worth more to the Kings than another team. It really depends on how much it will cost to keep him (I know that’s not a definitive answer). This situation just reminds me that you never know what can happen in the NBA … before the season the front office wasn’t even expecting this kind of contribution from Shumpert.
Sean Cunningham: Kings vs Thunder tonight. ICYM Iman Shumpert (Hip contusion) and Bogdan Bogdanovic (sore foot) will be out tonight. Troy Williams will not be transferred to Stockton – he’ll be available to play.
Which rappers that you know of in the NBA, we know that Damian Lillard is a rapper, Shaq used to rap, Iman Shumpert has an album out, would you love to get on a track with? Definitely Dame D.O.L.L.A., that’s Damian Lillard’s rap name. I think that would be dope for me to get on a track with him. I think it would be very impactful for the league and for athletes, well young athletes all over the world. There’s a lot of great guys in the league so him to Iman [Shumpert] to Lou Will[iams], to Lance [Stephenson], even Andre Drummond raps a little bit, too. But there are a lot of guys that do music and it’s pretty cool to see.
James Ham: Kings injury report: Kosta Koufos-OUT (right calf strain) Iman Shumpert-OUT (load management)
Iman Shumpert knows good lyrics when he sees them. BET called upon Shump’s services to take part in rating the work of other artists in a series called “Rate the Bars”. In the episode, Shump breaks down several songs relating to hoops and gives his honest feedback about the lyrics.
James Ham: Kings injury report for tonight vs. Portland Bogdan Bogdanovic-OUT, left knee (post procedure recovery) Kosta Koufos-OUT, right hamstring strain. Iman Shumpert-OUT, sore left calf (return from injury management).
Sean Cunningham: Kings vs. Warriors (in Seattle) Kosta Koufos-OUT, right hamstring strain. Iman Shumpert-OUT, sore left calf (day to day) Nemanja Bjelica-OUT, sore left knee (day to day) Yogi Ferrell – Questionable, sprained right thumb; x-rays negative.

Iman Shumpert says he doesn’t need his wife’s help with his rap career … ’cause releasing songs with Teyana Taylor will only HURT his music goals!! The NBA star told us he takes his rap seriously … and if he blows up ’cause of songs he released with his famous boo — he says it just wouldn’t feel right.
“I could use my wife, but it’s just I would rather people connect with me in certain ways,” Iman told TMZ Sports at LAX this week. Don’t get it twisted … Shump’s got songs with Teyana — and he says he has even more with celebs that would skyrocket his career.
In an expected move, Kings guard Iman Shumpert has officially exercised his $11 million option Friday to return to the Kings next season, a league source confirmed to The Bee. Shumpert joins center Kosta Koufos as veterans who have decided to exercise player options on contracts for next season. Koufos’ option is worth $8.7 million.
Shams Charania: Sacramento Kings guard Iman Shumpert has opted into his $11M player option for the 2018-19 season, league sources tell Yahoo.
Iman Shumpert: For the Players x By the Players congrats to my bro on a great playoff run and now being named “The NBPA Sneaker Champ” – Pj Tucker @therealpjtucker17 @thenbpa #thenbpa #PlayersVoice pic.twitter.com/WzeWWwY28c

Iman Shumpert: I can’t wait to be allowed to play basketball without consulting with a medical team. These playoffs got me in my feelings 😢
5. Excluding you and your teammates, which pair of current teammates would make the best ‘NBA Jam’ duo? Curry: If it’s not me, I probably gotta roll with Steph and KD [Kevin Durant]. That’s a legendary duo. Reigning champs. That’s a good one. Al Jefferson: James Harden and Chris Paul. DeAndre Jordan: That’s tough, man. I mean, probably Steph and Durant. Brook Lopez: Obviously, it’s tough to go against the Warriors now. KD and Steph, something like that. I mean, I guess I would be a little biased since I played with Run TMC in the old “NBA Jam” game, but they’re the first thing that pops to mind. They’d definitely be good. Iman Shumpert: Steph and Durant. For sure.
Shumpert is almost certain to opt in for next season. Having dealt with foot and knee injuries, this is not the time for Shumpert to test free agency when he has $11 million guaranteed for next season, even if he’s not a part of the Kings’ long-term plans. I’m intrigued by what Shumpert might add. He’s only 27 and has shown he can play in pressure situations, having been a part of Cleveland’s 2016 NBA championship team. Shumpert will be motivated to show the rest of the league he is healthy and that he can play a key role on a team.
Iman Shumpert says just because his wife is down with G.O.O.D. music, it doesn’t mean he is … telling TMZ Sports he’s never even gotten so much as a beat from his boss-in-law, Kanye West. Shumpert is a pretty serious rapper himself, having released his Mixtape “Shumpman: The MD” back in 2016, and continuing to flood social media with new verses on the regular.
When Altman visited with James in the Cavaliers’ practice facility a week ago, he let him know that there were still talks alive with the LA Clippers on a Jordan deal. What’s more, there was significant progress: Altman had ownership approval to send the Clippers Jae Crowder, Channing Frye, Iman Shumpert and the Cavs’ 2018 first-round pick for Jordan. The Clippers were willing to accept the trade, but on one significant condition. Clippers general manager Michael Winger explained to Altman that LA didn’t want another shooting guard. He hoped to find a third team that would take Shumpert and his $21 million with draft compensation, and have the Clippers get a center back. Altman and Winger agreed to make more calls to try to find a third team to make the deal work. Winger wondered whether Altman would let him talk to Shumpert’s agent about a possible contract buyout, but Altman wanted trade talks to be further along before granting that permission.
Once Altman raised the idea with Wade and his agent, Leon Rose, there was no hesitation. Soon, all of the deals were done. Thomas, Frye and Shumpert were headed West, Wade had gone home and now everything had changed in Cleveland. Finally, Altman and his staff stood to let out a yell, hug and high-five. Whatever happens, they knew this: In one of the most impactful trade deadline days ever, Koby Altman and the Cleveland Cavaliers weren’t prepared to extinguish an era. Twenty-four hours had changed everything.
Sean Cunningham: Iman Shumpert will take his physical tomorrow. Has been bothered by plantar fasciitis in his left foot. Was meeting new teammates following the game but unable to talk since physical is Saturday.
Dave McMenamin: Iman Shumpert isn’t expected to get his physical in Sacramento until Saturday, so that rules out George Hill and Rodney Hood from playing tonight, per a Cavs source. There is still a possibility Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. suit up tonight vs ATL in 2 1/2 hours however.
Pro basketball player Iman Shumpert and singer-actress Teyana Taylor, whose VH1 reality show “Teyana & Iman” is set to premier in March, have bought a home in Studio City for $2.996 million. Competed last year, contemporary-style house is visually dramatic with offset rooflines and a monochromatic facade. The wide front of the home gives way to a wealth of open-plan space highlighted by 12-foot-high ceilings and Italian tile floors.

Sacramento now joins a small group of teams with cap space for the summer of 2018. Shedding the George Hill contract now has Sacramento with $24M in room that could increase to $40M if Iman Shumpert and Garrett Temple opt-out of their contract.
The Cavaliers will now see their luxury tax bill reduced from $43.1M to $40.8M, a savings of $2.3M. The Jordan Clarkson cap hit is $11.5M, $12.5M and $13.4M. Larry Nance Jr. is under contract for $1.5M and $2.3M. The Cavaliers now have $135M in guaranteed salaries next season, including the $35.6M LeBron James and $11M Iman Shumpert player option.
