2014-15

Entering his fourth year in the NBA, Shumpert has deflected trade rumors ever since tearing his ACL in 2011-12 but has remained the Knicks' starting shooting guard for the better part of the past two seasons. In 74 games and 58 starts last season, Shumpert averaged just 6.7 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.7 assists, and 1.2 steals while playing 27 minutes per game. More concerning for a shooting guard, Shumpert converted just 38 percent of his field goal attempts, and his three-point rate dropped to merely 33 percent last season. However, under new president Phil Jackson and coach Derek Fisher, Shumpert should evoke confidence from improved job security, as he is clearly the Knicks' best defensive player now that Tyson Chandler has departed. Knowing that, Shumpert is projected to start next to the defensively deficient Jose Calderon in New York's backcourt. That being said, teammates J.R. Smith and Tim Hardaway are more gifted offensive talents that could push Shumpert to start if he stumbles out of the gates. Nonetheless, Shumpert's ability to play multiple wing positions figures to earn him significant playing time in Fisher's rotation, but he'll need to prove he's more than a defensive stopper to merit fantasy consideration outside of deeper leagues.

2013-14

Shumpert missed the start of last season while recovering from a torn ACL and struggled when he returned as he only averaged 6.8 points and 3.0 rebounds per game. However, Shumpert is a very good perimeter defender, something the Knicks sorely need. After a normal offseason and being even further removed from knee surgery, Shumpert could be in store for a resurgence this season. The one negative is that he'll have J.R. Smith behind him, cutting into his playing time significantly. Even if he doesn't see the kind of playing time a starter would traditionally see, he should still be a solid source of steals and three-pointers.

2012-13

Shumpert is recovering from ACL surgery and isnít likely to play until January. Even when he does return, it may take him even longer to return to full strength. He averaged 11.9 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.1 steals as a rookie last season and is highly thought of within the organization. He could provide fantasy owners with solid value when he gets healthy, but it will take some patience to wait for his return.

2011-12

Nominally a point guard at Georgia Tech, Shumpert is likely to see time at both guard spots and even small forward for the Knicks. He has very good size (6-5, 220) for the backcourt and is an excellent athlete, with the potential to develop into a stopper on the perimeter. All indications are that Mike DíAntoni will find Shumpert a regular spot in the rotation; he could emerge as a sneaky source of steals this year.
