“He’s the kind of player who makes sense to build around. Not as a foundational superstar… but as a prototype of ‘this is the kind of player we want.’”

Jalen Brunson will be the 47th-highest paid player in the NBA next season by average annual salary. At $26 million, the Knicks will pay him little less annually than Jaren Jackson Jr. and a million more than Nikola Vucevic and John Collins. – 9:52 PM

Jalen Brunson shot 59% around the rim, 58% on floaters, 48% in the midrange, and 38% from beyond the arc in the half court last season. – 9:51 PM

From last night’s pod, here’s the breakdown with @dieter on the Jalen Brunson-to-New York Knicks deal. How does he fit there? Shouldn’t Knicks fans’ just be pumped they won a high-profile FA race?

a grade for jalen brunson’s new four-year, $104 million deal with the new york knicks: si.com/nba/2022/07/01…9:43 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz
Conventional structure for a Jalen Brunson contract of four years, $104M:
Year 1: $24.2M
Year 2: $25.4M
Year 3: $26.6M
Year 4: $27.8M
If the Knicks make salaries decelerating, it’d be:
Year 1: $28.1M
Year 2: $26.7M
Year 3: $25.3M
Year 4: $23.9M
Or they could do $26M a year. – 9:41 PM

Chuck Swirsky @ctsbulls
Draft shows are 95% saturated with Kyrie and KD stories—-you know what- this is a huge day for undrafted players who agreed to a generational contract ( Dort) for guys like Anfernee Simons and Jalen Brunson who bet on themselves and will make 25 million a year. Good on them. – 8:42 PM

I think we’re going to hear Kyrie Irving linked to Dallas now because Jalen Brunson is leaving whether or not the Mavericks are really interested.
They might be, but even if they aren’t, it behooves the Nets to pretend there are serious suitors just for leverage with the Lakers. – 5:11 PM
Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
Jalen Brunson goes to Knicks, a team for whom Rick Brunson played and works, a team that Leon Rose runs, and Leon Rose was Rick Brunson’s agent, and Leon Rose – reportedly – is Jalen Brunson’s godfather, and Leon Rose is Sam Rose’s father, and Sam Rose is Jalen Brunson’s agent. – 5:10 PM

Fred Katz @FredKatz
The Knicks have a couple of options for structuring a 4-yr, $110M contract for Jalen Brunson.
Conventional structure would be:
1: $25.6M
2: $26.9M
3: $28.1M
4: $29.4M
But they have the cap room to make it decreasing, which could be:
1: $29.7M
2: $28.2M
3: $26.8M
4: $25.3M – 5:09 PM

Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
One domino effect of a hypothetical Jalen Brunson sign-and-trade to Miami is that it would essentially open up the full MLE to be used on a free agent, since the team would be hard capped already. – 9:50 AM
Chris Sheridan @sheridanhoops
With DeAndre Ayton to #Nets rumors rampant, #Heat getting a meeting with Jalen Brunson and #spurs trading Dejounte Murray to #Hawks, there are not a whole bunch of unrestricted free agency options for Leon Rose and the #Knicks. Huge day for him. Hope he has Plans B and C. – 9:27 AM

More on this storyline

Adrian Wojnarowski: Free agent guard Jalen Brunson has agreed to a four-year, $104 million deal with the New York Knicks, his agents Aaron Mintz and Sam Rose of @CAA_Basketball tell ESPN. The deal includes a player option on the final season. -via Twitter @wojespn / June 30, 2022
The Mavericks declined to offer Brunson a contract extension before the season, then pitched a $106 million deal, according to a source. But they never got another chance. Word of Brunson’s firm commitment to the Knicks leaked about an hour before free agency started, backing up the sentiment from earlier this week that this partnership was fait accompli. -via New York Daily News / June 30, 2022
Marc Stein: As for Jalen Brunson … sources briefed on Dallas’ scheduled NYC meeting today say: *Meeting canceled by Brunson’s representatives *Dallas told money not be a deciding factor because of Brunson’s determination to sign with Knicks *Mavs did not formally present an offer today -via Twitter @TheSteinLine / June 30, 2022
