The Phoenix Suns are trying to bolster their backcourt by pursuing New York Knicks guard Iman Shumpert via a trade, reports Yahoo! Sports. 

The report says that the Suns are willing to send forward Jared Dudley and a possible future first-round draft pick to the Knicks for Shumpert, but the team has not responded.

Dudley, 27, is a former first-round pick who has started 40 games this season for the Suns. He is averaging 11.8 points per game and hits 39 percent of his 3-point field goal attempts. Dudley has three years and $12.8 million left on his contract.

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.
Shumpert, in his second season, is averaging 5.6 points and 3.3 rebounds per game.
