The New York Knicks have been rather busy this offseason, trading for Andrea Bargnani, re-signing an injured J.R. Smith and also bringing in Metta World Peace after he was amnestied by the Los Angeles Lakers.
Whether these moves work out remains to be seen, but according to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News, there's one Knick who's not happy with how this offseason has played out. That would be Iman Shumpert, who also reportedly drew the ire of owner James Dolan for not having interest in the Summer League team:
I guess the only question is if Metta expires before Shumpert, one of the few Knicks who has value. Dolan is reportedly upset that Shumpert wasn't interested in working with the summer league team and wants to trade him. Shumpert, I've heard, isn't too crazy about the moves the Knicks have made, which could further stunt his development.
Shumpert is considered an integral part of the Knicks moving forward, as his tenacious perimeter defense will be key against the top offensive wing players in the NBA. Needless to say, an unhappy Shumpert certainly wouldn't be a good thing for New York.
However, Shumpert took to Twitter on Sunday night to refute Isola's report that he's not pleased with what the Knicks have done this summer:
Can we please DEAD these dumb ass rumors! I love my team as well as the new additions. I wanna win! #thatisall -Iman Shumpert— Iman Shumpert (@I_Am_Iman) July 21, 2013
So apparently that's that. At least for now.
