Iman-Shumpert

Iman Shumpert has been in nearly every New York Knicks trade rumor the past two seasons but new Knicks President Phil Jackson has bigger plans for the young shooting guard.

According to Marc Berman of the New York Post Shumpert is a big part of the Knicks’ future plans.

Now Shumpert appears to have a legitimate future with Phil Jackson’s Knicks. According to a league source, Jackson is a fan of Shumpert.

Shumpert is a defensive-minded player who sacrifices his game and doesn’t need to score a lot to have an impact.

“Iman is still part of this,’’ a league source familiar with the Knicks’ thinking told The Post.

Shumpert was excited about having Phil in New York.

“I love Phil Jackson,’’ Shumpert said. “Just being a child, seeing him, how he conducted the Bulls. I just love him.’’
