When it rains, it pours. First, new of Eric Gordon wanting the Suns.

Now, it seems that New York might be willing to give us Iman Shumpert for the right to pay Steve Nash a bucket of money.

Well well... Iman Shumpert would be a VERY nice long-term asset in return for losing Nash, who was leaving anyway.

More to be added later, as the story unfolds.

First reported by Alan Hahn, a Knicks beat writer, and further delved into by Marc Stein, a friend of Nash in the media business. Toronto and Dallas remain in the hunt, but the Knicks are #1.
