Luka Doncic is reportedly one of the reasons for leaving 🤔

In my opinion, Jalen Brunson would have had more reps and much better workouts and intervals if he had stayed in Dallas. With Randle and Barrett as the two frequently used left-handers looking to attack from the right side of the court, plus below-average distance, he would have maximized his DAL potential more – 23:40

Mike Vorkunov @MikeVorkunov
Jalen Brunson will become the 14th highest paid player in the NBA next season if he earns $110 million. @Chris Haynes reported. He will start next season with around $25 million if there is a contractual salary increase. He would have been the 12th highest paid PG ($29 million) had his contract been cut. – 23:11

With all the talk about Jalen Brunson, it’s interesting to go back to the 2018 draft. He was a winner, national POY; still fell for the Mavs at age 33.
The Pacers took Aaron Holiday 10 positions early when he was 23 years old. He, too, could become a free agent if PHX doesn’t offer a QO.

Fred Katz @FredKatz
The Knicks could structure Jalen Brunson’s contract on a downward scale because @TheCohencidence prophetically prompted recently, after this transaction. A downward 4-year trade worth around $110 million could start just above $29 million. The Knicks are now $29.4 million below the cap without giving up Taj Gibson. – 23:04

This evening, Voy used the following descriptions regarding the Knicks’ expected offer to Jalen Brunson after free agency kicks in:
“amazing offer”
“massive four-year offer”
“in the region of the maximum contract” – 23:00

Mike Vorkunov @MikeVorkunov
PSV, @John Hollinger Jalen Brunson is valued at $29.37 million as a free agent. So if the Knicks get him for a starting salary of around $30 million, that might not be too high an estimate. theathletic.com/3351204/2022/0…22:48

Mika Adams @Mika Adams13
How good is Jalen Brunson?
Even better…
If every NBA player becomes a free agent and all 30 teams go through a trial draft where only the next 4 years matter, where will Jalen Brunson be chosen? – 22:25

KC Johnson @KCJHoop
Jalen Brunson lived up to all the qualities that Tom Thibodeau appreciates in players: winner, strength, durability, reliability. When you embody these qualities, Tibs will have your back for life. (Derrick Rose, Taj Gibson, Joakim Noah, Jimmy Butler, Luol Deng…) – 22:22

Salman Ali @SalmanAliNBA
Jalen Brunson is good, but not THAT good. – 22:21

Tony Jones @Tyonesontenba
We’re going for Jalen Brunson, Julius Randle and Barrett to make $100 million on the 7th best team in the Eastern Conference. 22:18

Michael Grange @michaelgrange
So if Jalen Brunson is going to sign a four-year contract with the Knicks starting at $30 million, I don’t see the Raptors having enough room to negotiate a contract extension with Fred VanWit that could go as high as $3/89 million. or 4/114 dollars. m. – 22:15

Kevin Chouinard @KLChuinar
1. I really like Jalen Brunson’s acting.
2. Jalen Brunson deserves all the money he can get.
3. I don’t like how this situation + contract + team is raising the bar for him, perhaps unfairly. – 22:14

Jan Begley @IanBegley
Sources confirmed the ESPN report that Alec Burks and Nerlens Noel will be sold to DET, opening up approximately $30 million in equity (depending on non-guaranteed NYK salaries). This gives NYK enough room to make a competitive FA offer to Jalen Brunson, whom they see as favorites. – 22:09

Mike Prada @MikePradaNBA
I wonder why the Knicks are so sure that Jalen Brunson will want to go there? NBA rules make it clear that teams must wait until 6:01 p.m. June 30 to lure, induce or persuade anyone with a contract with another team to negotiate their services. – 22:06

Bobby Marks @BobbyMarks42
There must be a price for Dallas to get away from Jalen Brunson.
Signing the quarterback for $30 million would have cost the Mavericks a total of $130 million in salary/taxes in one season for Brunson alone. – 22:05

Kai Carlin @Kai_Carlin
I think the funniest thing would be if the Knicks did all this just to have Jalen Brunson surprise everyone and re-sign with the Mavericks. 22:03

Jay King @AuthorJayKing
These dudes moved mountains for Jalen Brunson. – 22:03

Jeff Goodman @GoodmanHoopes
I LOVE Jalen Brunson. He’s all about winning and doing all the right things… but it’s still Leon Rose, Willie Wesley and the Knicks. – 22:02

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
I really like Jalen Brunson, but I don’t like him, probably twice as much as Tyus Jones is going to get. – 21:59

Mark Dix @MarkDixNBA
That’s really a hell of a lot of effort for Jalen Brunson. – 21:57

Brandon Leader @Brandon Rahbar
When Sam Presti talks about not taking shortcuts or hitting the boost button on the OKC recovery to gain short-term gains but hurt the long-term future, he was referring to not divesting assets to give Jalen Brunson the maximum contract. – 21:55

Adrian Voinarovsky @wojespn
The Knicks set aside a $30 million salary cap to offer Jalen Brunson of Dallas a maximum contract. The asset and contract dumps clearly show the Knicks’ confidence that they will be able to secure Brunson once free agency opens on Thursday. – 21:54

Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman
Nix. move and shake with free will after two days.
I really can’t wait to see this Jalen Brunson proposal. – 21:53

Kyle Rathke @Kyle_Rathke
“Clearing the way for a cap seat for Jalen Brunson” is what we’re going to say, “Huh?” after 2 years. – 21:49

Dan Favale @danfavale
The Knicks dumped Alec Burks and Nerlens Noel so they could sign Jalen Brunson…and keep Taj Gibson. pic.twitter.com/FtIKfksY9921:48

Lowe Murray @Murray’s LawTheNU
So would you prefer Jalen Brunson or Tim Hardaway Jr😐 – 21:45

Adrian Voinarovsky @wojespn
The Knicks are Nerlens Noel’s trading center and Alec Burks’ cornerback for the Pistons, sources tell ESPN. The Knicks will take another $19 million in pay cuts, clearing the way for a free agent to try to sign defenseman Jalen Brunson. – 21:43

Mike Vorkunov @MikeVorkunov
The biggest takeaway from the Jalen Brunson news is that if the Knicks sign him, they’re 3/5th of the way to an all-left roster. – 20:40

Stephen No @StephNo
I’m a big fan of Jalen Brunson. He was one of my first hidden gems, back in April. Then I looked at a lot of his games to determine his strengths and weaknesses. Explains why the Knicks want to give him the bag:

Mike Prada @MikePradaNBA
Honestly, I don’t believe Jalen Brunson is signing with the Knicks. They must trust that CAAn will help them move to the next level. – 18:34

Fred Katz @FredKatz
If Jalen Brunson moves to the Knicks, it will be interesting to see how he fits into offense with the top two scorers, Barrett and Randle, who are best on the arc, and also maybe with a rim diving 5. Brunson is so effective on the part bc his rinkidink moves inside the arc. – 18:26

Jalen Brunson is really good, not a blatant overpayment.
the real issue is the process by which nixes get here – and this Brunson is who you prioritize when you already have a Guy, not when you don’t even have someone on your list to become/grow up in Guy. – 17:40

Point guards will average 15+ points per game and 50+% FPV in 2022:

Jalen Brunson eliminated in 2022 playoffs:
– 7th place in total points
– 2-1 without Luka
– 2nd place in the number of OREBs for a security guard
– Beat Booker and CP3 together in Game 7
Time to get money. pic.twitter.com/IWBrfFjCww17:32

I’ll add to the chorus: The Mavericks have had faith for at least the last couple of weeks, a few…
