Not often do you see a team reveal an arrest before a news outlet does. Not many details are known about the arrest, and as the Cavs state, there is currently no court date listed for Shumpert in the Fayette County Clerk’s online database.
The Cavaliers agreed on a four-year, $40 million deal with Shumpert this summer after the guard helped them win an NBA championship last season.
