Iman Shumpert — 2016 Cleveland Cavaliers
The pride of Oak Park, Illinois, can’t find an NBA home these days. Iman Shumpert was traded two years in a row on nearly the exact day, just before the trade deadline. First it was to the Sacramento Kings, and then they unloaded his hefty contract on the Houston Rockets.
It’s hard to believe that only a few years ago, Shumpert was a prized young 3-and-D wing player for the Knicks. The Cleveland Cavaliers traded for two Knicks shooting guards, and at the time, Shumpert was supposed to be the prize in the deal. Instead, he never seemed healthy enough and J.R. Smith turned out to be the prize (?) in the deal. He played bench minutes for the Cavs championship team with an ugly -9 on/off in the playoffs.
