New York Knicks Select Shumpert With 17th Overall Pick
With the 17th overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, the New York Knicks selected Iman Shumpert from Georgia Tech. During his junior year in Georgia Tech, Shumpert averaged 17.3 ppg and 3.5 apg.
In addition to his offensive abilities Shumpert excels at the defensive end, and last season he averaged nearly three steals per game. The Knicks will be looking to increase their athletic ability in the back-court, and Shumpert will be a great compliment to Chauncey Billups.
