Jalen Brunson to the Knicks and between the KD bomb and the Yankees playing in Houston, the Knicks might barely get mentioned on the back pages. – 5:12 PM
Ian Begley @IanBegley
Source says Mavericks have been informed they are out on Jalen Brunson, confirming @Tim MacMahon report. Brunson intends to sign with New York once free agency opens. – 5:11 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
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
Shams Charania @ShamsCharania
Free agent Jalen Brunson intends to sign a four-year, near $110M deal with the New York Knicks in free agency, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium. The Mavericks never received chance to make offer, sources said. – 5:02 PM
Tim MacMahon @espn_macmahon
Source: Mavericks were informed that Jalen Brunson has made up his mind to sign with the Knicks, so no need for the meeting.
@Marc Stein first with news that meeting with the Mavs was off. – 5:02 PM

Update: League sources tell me that the Mavericks’ scheduled meeting tonight with Jalen Brunson is OFF.

According to a league source, the Heat never was scheduled to meet with top free agent Jalen Brunson and won’t be meeting with him today. – 11:01 AM

The Heat are not planning to meet with Jalen Brunson today, and they did not have such a meeting scheduled, per league source. – 11:01 AM

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

Fred Katz @FredKatz
Jalen Brunson isn’t the only guy who could get a big deal from the Knicks.
When free agency begins, RJ Barrett is eligible for an extension. His max is $185 million over 4 years.
Will the Knicks give it to him?

Eric Koreen @ekoreen
It’s enjoyable that free agency hasn’t started and the Knicks have already lost free agency. (Mandatory note that Jalen Brunson is good.) – 1:50 PM
Dave Early @DavidEarly
If you knew you were losing Jalen Brunson, would you be interested in Tobias Harris or Matisse Thybulle? (If you got Harris, you’d have to offer multiple picks to get Bobi back though I figure.) – 1:35 PM

More on this storyline

Sources said the Mavericks were willing to give Brunson a five-year contract — which only Dallas can offer due to owning his Bird rights — that was comparable to the four-year, $85 million deal that guard Fred VanVleet signed with the Toronto Raptors in 2020. -via ESPN / June 30, 2022
Marc Stein: As covered in two previous pieces, Dallas is not expected to immediately pursue guards after losing Jalen Brunson. With Spencer Dinwiddie in place and Tim Hardaway Jr. due back from injury, Goran Dragic IS a strong eventual target after the Mavs chase wing and front-line depth. -via Twitter @TheSteinLine / June 30, 2022
