Mavericks confident they'll be able to re-sign Jalen Brunson

- by

Behind the scenes, Mavericks officials continue to express confidence that they will re-sign Brunson, who becomes an unrestricted free agent in July if Dallas does not sign him to a contract extension by June 30. Brunson and defensive specialist Dorian Finney-Smith are both eligible for extensions before the end of this salary-cap year and the Mavericks naturally hope to keep both given the significant roles they’ve seized.

Excellent news for the Mavericks that Jalen Brunson (foot) was able to practice. He said he feared the worst when Zubac stepped on his foot. Story to come. – 2:25 PM

Mavs are finishing up practice and we’re told Jalen Brunson went through at least a portion of it, which seems like good news given how much pain he appeared to be in when he got his foot stepped on against the Clips. – 2:10 PM
