Really can’t believe Jalen Brunson is signing with the Knicks. They have to believe that he can help them get to the next level. † 18:34

If Jalen Brunson ends up with the Knicks, it will be fascinating to see how he fits in an attack with two top scorers, Barrett and Randle, who are best within the arc, as well as possibly a rim-diving 5. Brunson is so effective for part of his rinkydink moves within the arc. † 18:26

jalen brunson is really good and not a blatant overpayment.
the real problem is the process by which the trinkets get here – and that brunson is someone you prioritize if you already have The Guy, not if you don’t even have someone on your roster to become/grow into The Guy. † 17:40

I’ll add to the chorus: the Mavericks have had a belief in recent weeks, multiple sources tell me, that Jalen Brunson would sign with the Knicks. at the moment it is seen as a certainty. † 17:22

Part of the Knicks pitch to Jalen Brunson, I’m told, is the opportunity to be a full-time point guard. In Dallas, Brunson can play with Luka. But Luka is the actual guard. In New York, Brunson would run the show. † 4:47 PM

At this point, it is widely expected that Jalen Brunson will go to the Knicks on a four-year deal worth more than $100 million. It remains to be seen how New York will free up the rest of the needed cap space and whether the Mavs can sign-and-trade to recoup assets. † 4:44 pm

Brunson, an unrestricted free agent because the fourth season of his rookie deal was unguaranteed rather than a team option, declined the Mavs’ offer for a four-year, $55.5 million contract extension after the trade deadline, when Dallas forward Dorian Finney-Smith signed an identical deal. At the time, Brunson was confident that he would earn significantly more as a free agent. -through ESPN / June 28, 2022

Brunson had informed the Mavs in January that he was willing to sign the extension if offered at the time, his father Rick Brunson told ESPN during the playoffs.
