Position/team: Guard/forward, Knicks
Current contract: 2014/15: $2.76 million; 2015/16: $3.9 million (qualifying offer)
Why the Celtics are a good fit: Anyone who watched the Knicks-Celtics series last year had to respect the way Shumpert plays the game. He’s a slightly taller Avery Bradley, an above-average defender and a decent shooter. If the Celtics plan to move on from Bradley or realize they can’t sign him, Shumpert would be a good replacement as a glue guy.
