Jalen Brunson was one of the Dallas Mavericks‘ best players this season, but the team was unable to agree on a contract extension. Averaging 21.6 points per game, Brunson was a pleasant surprise in the NBA postseason.

Moreover, the New York Knicks are reportedly in the process of offering the point guard a four-year, $100 million contract. After moving for Kemba Walker, the Knicks now have a salary cap room to pursue Brunson.

Upon Jalen Brunson’s impending free agency next week, the New York franchise are reportedly planning to present him with the aforementioned contract, according to New York Times’ Marc Stein.

Where next for Brunson?

He also disclosed that Dallas squandered two chances to keep Brunson on board by not extending his contract. The Mavericks thought they might get his services on a four-year, 88 million dollar contract at the conclusion of the season.

Brunson has the option of signing a new one-year contract extension with the Mavericks, but the Knicks might give him a more prominent position on the club. When it comes to the New York Knicks coaching staff and front office, his father Rick Brunson is a member, while his old agent Leon Rose is head of the front office.
