After a summer that started with an NBA Finals loss to the Golden State Warriors in which he saw his role drastically reduced and continued with his name being mentioned in several trade scenarios, Cleveland Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert and Cavs coach Tyronn Lue had an air-it-out meeting before the start of training camp last month.

“It was just that time for me to have a, just a grown-up conversation with him and just let him know, ‘Can we just sort of knock down the coach-player thing right now and can I just sort of talk to you personally about how I feel about how everything finished up last year?'” Shumpert said after practice Tuesday.
