Shumpert Ready if J.R. Smith Departs
Iman Shumpert is always up for a challenge.
But he could be facing another challenge next season. J.R. Smith, the Knicks’ Sixth Man of the Year, will become a free agent and may not be back. If Smith doesn’t return, Shumpert is ready to pick up the slack.
“I always accepted all challenges,” Shumpert said. “I would just take that as another challenge.”
