New York Knicks coach Mike Woodson said reserve guard Iman Shumpert will not be traded before the Feb. 21 deadline.
Woodson made the statement while appearing on ESPN New York 98.7 FM on Tuesday.
During the show, co-host Stephen A. Smith asked the coach if Shumpert would be in a Knicks uniform after the Feb. 21 trade deadline, and Woodson said, "You got it. I don't need to say any more."
Earlier in the week, Carmelo Anthony responded to the Shumpert trade rumors, saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." On Tuesday, Woodson agreed.
"Absolutely," he said. "We've had our ups and downs in terms of injuries, but we remain very strong as a team and guys that were in uniform have helped us hold the fort down in terms of staying afloat until key guys got back."
