Iman Shumpert?




As I was listening to the latest Grantland episode both Bill Simmons and Jaylen Smith were throwing out trade ideas that might make sense for contending teams to make to get them over the hump. They had some good proposals but Bill Simmons mentioned the blazers should target Iman shumpert. At first I thought it was ridiculous but it got me thinking to what Dwight James of CSNNW mentioned a few weeks back that the blazers just need that one guy whether it's a guard or a forward to come into the game and put the clamps down defensively to ignite the team. We know the blazers can make defense stops but they lack consistency for most of the time. I haven't been real high on Shumpert because of his offensive inabilities, but as I watch him more and more he is starting to improve his shot and is more than capable of defending opposing teams best players.

Shumpert for CJ and players/ Barton and Meyers for Shumpert might seemed far fetched at this point but just a thought.
