Jalen Brunson intends to sign a four-year, $110 million deal with the New York Knicks at the start of free agency. The deal will likely be worth approximately $105 million plus additional incentives.
Brunson informed the Dallas Mavericks of his plans. The Mavericks were never given a chance to make an offer to Brunson.
Dallas declined the opportunity to extend Brunson on a four-year, $56 million extension multiple times during the 21-22 season.
The Knicks cleared cap space in the week before the start of free agency to make an offer to Brunson. Brunson's father, Rick Brunson, was hired by the Knicks as an assistant coach this offseason. Brunson's former agent, Leon Rose, runs New York's front office.
Brunson averaged 16.3 points, 3.9 rebounds and 4.8 assists in 79 games during the regular season.
