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

NBA executives think a potential extension for Hawks forward De’Andre Hunter could be in the high teens or $20 million annually.

Woj, on Sportscenter:
“But Atlanta, listen, they’re not done dealing yet. They still have been engaged on John Collins. Fundamentally, there are going to be some more changes in Atlanta, but they’re pretty excited about the idea of Dejounte Murray joining Trae Young.” – 6:19 PM

More on this storyline

There is a handful of ways the Hawks can get to $35.2 million in outgoing salary to match for Durant. John Collins, whose name has been all overtrade rumors all last week, would be a great start with his $23.5 million salary. After that, one of Bogdan Bogdanovic, Kevin Huerter, or Clint Capela would be enough to match salaries. It’s possible Brooklyn could look to get off Joe Harris and his remaining $38.6 million through 2023-24. If that’s a requirement, Atlanta could get there with a package including Collins, Bogdanovic, and Hunter. -via HoopsHype / June 30, 2022
Chris Kirschner on John Collins’ trade market: From talking with people since the draft, it seems like the market for Collins has decreased quite a bit. Now, I’m not really sure who’s interested in him… As it stands now for John, the market has definitely dwindled down for him. It’s not a possibility the Hawks just keep him. The Hawks aren’t going to just trade John for nothing. We’re talking about someone who’s a really good player. -via HoopsHype / June 30, 2022
