NEW YORK Carmelo Anthony reiterated Knicks coach Mike Woodson’s mantra that Iman Shumpert shouldn’t be traded.

“He ain’t going nowhere, he ain’t gotta worry about that,” Anthony said of Shumpert after putting up 42 points in the Knicks’ 102-88 loss to the Clippers at Madison Square Garden. “The Knicks shouldn’t even be in trade talks right now.”

Shumpert has been mentioned in a potential multi-player deal to the Phoenix Suns for Jared Dudley.

Woodson said he addressed the trade rumors with Shumpert and the second-year guard isn’t going anywhere.

“He said don’t worry about,” Shumpert said after managing just two points on 1-of-4 shooting. “A rumor’s a rumor.”
