The banknote counting machine is installed in the house of Jalen Brunson and will be running at full capacity in the coming weeks. As happy as he may have been in the Dallas Mavericks, this intelligent and talented point guard has earned a place in the elite of the league and the great unknown for him is whether it is worth being faithful to the Mavs to seek the ring in a consolidated project , or seek greater individual prominence in the team that offers you more money. It is evident that the Texan franchise has had several opportunities to renew Brunson and did not exercise them, which shows a lack of confidence in a player who has ended up hatching. All the NBA rumors They point to huge interest from many franchises, which would offer him a leading role as well as huge amounts of money, according to Hoopshype.
The first public offer has not been long in coming; has come from New York Knicks and could reach 100 million dollars for 4 years. Brunson and those around him are not going to be convinced quickly, but will talk to several teams, delay a final decision and, ultimately, seek to have a real bid for him throughout the summer. A summer soap opera is looming with this player, who is expected to receive offers from other teams. Detroit Pistons, Indiana Pacers and San Antonio Spurs They have a salary gap to face their signing, although none of these options ends up convincing Jalen and his entourage.
The most feasible option is a sign & trade with Knicks
Much more feasible is a sign & trade with the Mavs, in order to allow the franchise that has given him everything in the league to benefit in some way from his departure, and he can earn all the money he wants. Washington Wizards would have options, offering Brunson the opportunity to have a very important role alongside Beal, although it is the Knicks who start with the most favoritism, and more so after seeing how the player’s father has signed with them as an assistant coach. The last option is that Dallas Mavericks throw the house out the window and recognize Jalen Brunson as an indispensable piece to fight for the ring, something that would force them to pay a lot in luxury tax.
