One week to go until the start of the Free Agency 2022, and NBA Rumors are red hot. One of the players to whom the spotlights are pointing the most these days is Jalen Brunson. The Dallas Mavericks player will be one of the most requested free agents, and the Texas franchise will have to press very hard for him if they want to keep him and keep him away from all the suitors he has.
One of these suitors is none other than New York Knicks. According to Hoopshype journalist Michael Scotto, the Big Apple franchise has Brunson as one of its main targets in the transfer market. In fact, the team would have already planned a strategy to free up enough space to face the contract requested by the 25-year-old point guard.
This plan involves dispensing with two players who do not fit into the plans of the head coach, Tom Thibodeau. Said players are Cam Reddish (who since his arrival has not convinced Thibodeau at any time) and Taj Gibson. The contractual situation of each one is very different.
A forced transfer and a very affordable resignation
First of all, the Knicks will have to look for a new destiny via transfer to Reddish. The player enters the 2022/23 season in the final year of his contract, where he will earn $5.9 million fully guaranteed. Gibson, for his part, also enters his final season on contract, only in this case it’s $5.1 million unguaranteed. New York will be able to give it up anytime it wants.
