Carmelo Anthony was asked Wednesday night whether he believes Iman Shumpert will be part of the New York Knicks' future despite rampant trade speculation.

"I think he is," Anthony said. "We have a lot of expectations for Iman."

The Knicks fell to 3-8 on the season in an overtime loss to the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday.

Shumpert committed a foul late in the fourth quarter that allowed Paul George to shoot three free throws to send the game into overtime.

Shumpert has been in various trade rumors this season.
