According to, the Phoenix Suns have serious interest in New York Knicks guard Iman Shumpert.

The Suns are willing to give New York a package that includes forward Jared Dudley and possibly a future first-round pick for Shumpert, but the Knicks have so far shown no inclination to do such a deal, sources said.

Shumpert returned to the Knicks in January after suffering a tear in his left cruciate ligament in the team's first game of last year's playoffs.

In his second season, Shumpert has averaged 5.6 points and 3.3 rebounds in 11 games.

The Suns have reportedly had scouts watching Shumpert the past week.

Dudley still has three years and $12.8 million left on his contract with the Suns. He has averaged 11.8 points and 3.6 rebounds this year.
