Another stupid "according to sources" rumor spreading like wildfire on Twitter. This one is Millsap for Shumpert. People are running with it without even acknowledging the fact that the Knicks would have to add $7 million in salary just to make it work financially let alone from a basketball perspective. The Knicks would have to move at least 2 other players who all make between $3-4.6 million, and they are all under contract for 2-4 years. No way this is happening.
Admittedly I've not seen Shump play. But his stats are terrible. Poor percentages all around. Why do people like his game? He's big. Is he a lock down defender?

#Jazz guard Mo Williams goes to New York today and will have pin removed from right thumb tomorrow morning. Rehab starts immediately.
The book I want to write: From Showtime to spreadsheet - How analytics killed the NBA.
I prefer watching Burks at PG over Mo. If we're going to have a chucker of a PG with questionable handles I prefer that he be young.
