Oklahoma City Thunder trade rumors indicate the team might trade Nick Collison to the New York Knicks. These Thunder trade rumors point to Iman Shumpert coming back as part of the deal. According to the report from late Saturday (Nov. 30), the potential deal would also involve sending a draft pick back to New York.
This seems like a deal that could help both franchises, with the Knicks looking to add some size and a future asset and OKC needing another guard who can help off the bench. Shumpert is the type of on-ball defender that could even step into the starting lineup as the shooting guard beside Russell Westbrook. He appears to be on the "outs" with the coaching staff in New York, potentially making him a steal in a trade like this.
It's clear that the New York Knicks are desperate to do something and these Oklahoma City Thunder trade rumors could even have an impact in fantasy basketball. It would certainly be interesting to see what a backcourt of Shumpert and Westbrook could do. As for the pick, even if it is a first round pick for the 2014 NBA Draft, it would be worth it to acquire the inexpensive Shumpert.
