Daily Dish Report: Jordan interview, Larry Sanders isn’t smart, Lakers streak, Iguodala and more
Trade talks between the New York Knicks and Denver Nuggets are heating up.
According to Frank Isola of the New York Daily Post, the Nuggets and Knicks are discussing a trade that would send Iman Shumpert to the Denver Nuggets in exchange for Kenneth Faried. Whether this works for both teams is another story. Faried is a hybrid type of player that would help the Knicks on the boards, but also hurt their spacing in the half-court set. Not to mention the Knicks are at their best when Carmelo Anthony is playing the power forward position. For the Nuggets, they’d acquire a young perimeter defender and basically would change their name to the Denver Knicks.
