    Default Dion Waiters for Shumpert?

    I bleed Orange but I don't know If I sign off on this trade. We can/should get more for Iman Shumpert than Neon Dion. Don't do it Knicks.

    If this happened they would need to refurbish MSG again cause it will get torn to shreds

    I haven't seen waiters play enough, but just by looking at his stats, he seems like the type of player all of us are expecting shumpert to be. Waiters is also is a year younger.

    I do want to keep shump though. I want to see what would happen if Shump can take Udrih's time, and consequently Murry can slide into Shumpert's old role. At this point, why the hell not? I also think Bargnani is a huge part of this mess. I have loved his play so far, but i think he should be coming off the bench as a 6th man. Having Aldrich at C as the replacement would be the best paint protection this team can offer, until chandler comes back of course.

    I'd do it in a second. What is Shump really doing for us? He doesn't even play good defense anymore

    Offensively Dion is better from what i've seen. Defensively Shump.. kinda a wash, though we really could use the offense too

    I would do that trade in a heartbeat. Waiters has much more potential.

    Dion has had no previous injury issues, he's younger, he has more potential. .....of course the Knicks brass will let this one slip away.

    I'd rather have Shump, Dion been inconsistent as well and isn't the defender Shump is. Faried would have been the better deal, but personally I'm tired of management trading players I like and we haven't had a trade work in our favor in forever

    Shumpert is a head case that has regressed. He has to go along with Felton, JR and Amare. Dion Waiters put up about 25 against the Heat...that does it for me.
