As the Phoenix Suns try to reshuffle their roster for the future, their front office remains motivated to try to acquire New York Knicks guard Iman Shumpert, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

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.

After tearing his left anterior cruciate ligament in the Knicks' opening game of last season's playoffs, Shumpert returned in January and has started the past 11 games. While Shumpert is still working himself back to the high level with which he performed as a rookie, the Knicks' front office remains a strong proponent of his talent, sources said.

After regretting they passed on Shumpert in the 2011 NBA draft, the Suns pushed the Knicks to include him in sign-and-trade scenarios discussed for Steve Nash in July. In the past week, the Suns have scouted Shumpert in person, sources said.

Dudley has three years and $12.8 million left on his contract, and has been available in trade talks, league sources said. He's averaging 11.8 points and 3.6 rebounds this season. Phoenix has also tried to move backup point guard Sebastian Telfair for a second-round pick, sources said.

If Woj reports it I gatta believe it has merit to it. Would be a smart move for the Suns I think. Shumpert is a really nice piece when healthy, and the Suns aren't going anywhere fast. They need some good young players.

Schump is a beastly role player. Not sure if he's as good as last year after that knee injury though...

Getting rid of the Dudley for Shumpert is about 3 million a year cheaper for the next few years...dunno if I'd give up a 1st though

Then what's the point for NYK? They give up the younger, higher upside and cheaper guy for an older guy and pay extra tax for what reason?

Sure PHX wants it, no reason NY does it, unless the pick is very good.

New York will need Shump's defensive prowess to make a deep run. He's one of the best perimeter defenders in the EC, along with Paul George, Avery Bradley and of course, LeBron. Ronnie Brewer and Courtney Lee are up there, too.

The Knicks are oozing with offensive dynamos, so that FO certainly values Shump's ability to get in the grill of a Wade or Rose for 4 Qs. I think it would take more than Dudley & a future 1st to get a young, versatile, super-athletic guard of his caliber. But, the knee thing may be a bigger concern than most believe.

Grunwald's trying to get a feel for Shump's market value. New York may very well be in play for a much larger deal.

Shumpert before the knee was a top 3 perimeter defender.

If the Knicks consider themselves championship contenders, they have zero incentive to trade Shumpert unless someone blows them away. Defenders like him don't grow on trees and he's on a rookie contract.

I really don't get it for the Knicks to give him up at this point when his value is lowest.

For the Suns they are right in trying to acquire young assets...but you don't trade a future first for him...not when you are this bad and could be locked into top 10 picks for the next few years.

Dudley and a future first?? I'd laugh and hang up the phone if I heard that.

The Suns first round pick would be valuable if its unprotected since they have the 5th worst record at the moment

Why don't they offer to take Amare off the knicks hands in exchange for getting Shumpert?

Knicks would be stupid to let Iman go.

The thing though is that they are stupid.
