Iman Shumpert has requested trade from Cavaliers

NBA trade rumors Iman Shumpert asked Cavs to get rid of him

"A Cavs source told ESPN simply that the team is "not closing the door" on more trades before training camp opens in late September".

ESPN's Dave McMenamin says Iman Shumpert has also requested a trade after the National Basketball Association season ended.

The Cleveland Cavaliers could have stood their ground, but they ultimately gave in to Kyrie Irving's trade request and sent him to the Celtics this week. This one is coming from guard Iman Shumpert, who has been the subject of trade rumors all summer. Shams Charania of The Vertical contradicted McMenamin's claim, saying Shumpert did not make a trade request. Last season, he played an average of 25.5 minutes per game.


It's hard to know what kind of return Shumpert would bring in because he is just a role player, but it's likely Cleveland would be looking for cap relief on a team that is already well into the luxury tax. The team was reportedly close to a deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Houston Rockets, but each fell through. The Charania report indicated that the Cavaliers had looked into trading Shumpert but that it wasn't at the guard's prompting. Logic would tell you that the Cavs will remain motivated to find a team to take Shumpert.

A 17th overall pick by the New York Knicks in 2011, Shumpert averaged 7.5 points in 76 games last season, making 36 percent of his attempts from three-point range. The 27-year-old Shumpert is set to earn $10.3 million in next season and has a player option worth $11 million in 2018-19.
