Sources: Clippers’ Brass Nixed Shumpert Deal

Updated

on

The Knicks’ priority all along in trading (Iman) Shumpert was to attach Raymond Felton’s contract to the deal and get a solid point guard in return. That nearly happened with the Clippers.

While Shumpert’s injury did not deter the Thunder, it did kill the Knicks’ hopes of sending him to Los Angeles. Clippers coach Doc Rivers really wanted Shumpert, sources say, and Rivers was willing to do a deal that would have sent Darren Collison, Matt Barnes, Byron Mullens and two second-round picks to New York for Shumpert, Felton and Beno Udrih. But Clippers owner Donald Sterling and others within the organization were hesitant to bet on Shumpert after seeing him go down in Wednesday’s game at New Orleans, according to sources.
