According to Dave McMenamin of ESPN, Iman Shumpert has asked the Cavs for a trade.
Shams Charania of The Vertical has reported that no formal trade request has been made, but the team has been shopping Shumpert all offseason. Either way, something’s got to give with Cleveland now at 17 players on the roster. McMenamin mentions Walter Tavares and Kay Felder as other potential options to be jettisoned from the roster. A Shumpert trade is likely the first domino to fall but he’s not likely to develop fantasy value regardless of where he suits up next season.
