Kenneth Faried’s name has been in trade rumors early on this season, and according to the NY Daily News, the Knicks and Denver Nuggets are discussing a trade involving Faried and Iman Shumpert: “According to a league source, no deal is imminent although the struggling Knicks feel they need to make a move to bolster their banged up front court. Tyson Chandler is out at least one month after breaking his leg last week while both Amar’e Stoudemire and Kenyon Martin have been placed on a minute’s restriction because if their health. Shumpert, a former first pick, has fallen out of favor with both head coach Mike Woodson and owner James Dolan. And with J.R. Smith promoted to the starting lineup at shooting guard for Wednesday’s game against the Atlanta Hawks, Shumpert will likely lose his starting spot once Chandler returns. Faried, a native of Newark, N.J., is an undersized power forward but his work rate makes him one of the NBA’s top rebounders.”
