Iman Shumpert is one of the most-talked about trade off this season, with many teams that will possibly be taking him in: Los Angeles Lakers, Minnesota Timberwolves and Philadelphia 76ers.
Iman Shumpert DUI Arrest And Low Scores On 2016 Playoffs Affecting His Career With Cleveland Cavaliers
Just recently, Cleveland Cavaliers' shooting guard Iman Shumpert was arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) and this could lead to him being traded off by his current team. Aside from his recent arrest, Shumpert has allegedly decreased his point value during the recent NBA Finals, which has been his lowest score in production.
Even though he managed to play a very big role for the team during the game, it still wasn't any of his best games yet and it could have possibly been his least. In line with this, it will be hard for the Cleveland Cavaliers to make him a valuable asset to the team, hence the trade-off rumors.
