Jalen Brunson agrees to four-year, $104 million deal with Knicks

Free agent guard Jalen Brunson has agreed to a four-year, $104 million deal with the New York Knicks, according to a report from NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski.

Fantasy Impact

Brunson had a breakout year for the Mavericks this season, averaging a career-high 31.9 minutes and 16.3 points per game. At one point, he was considered a lock to return to Dallas, but he instead inks a four-year deal with a fifth-year player option with the Knicks ahead of his 26th birthday. Brunson joins Evan Fournier in the New York backcourt and should be a focal point of a reshaped Knicks offensive attack in 2022-2023.

Jalen Brunson: Knicks to present four-year offer

When free agency opens on Thursday, the New York Knicks are expected to present Jalen Brunson a four-year offer in the vicinity of $110 million.

Fantasy Impact

The Knicks offseason moves continue to make it seem like they'll be going all in on Brunson from the trades made on draft day to trading Nerlens Noel and Alec Burks on Tuesday to open up more cap space. As we are now just days away from free agency opening up, it sounds like Brunson will be the Knicks next starting point guard barring a last minute change of heart for either side.

Jalen Brunson continues to be on Knicks radar

The expectation remains that the New York Knicks will be heavily interested in Jalen Brunson once free agency opens up.

Fantasy Impact

The Knicks acquired Jalen Duren and paired him with Kemba Walker in a trade to Detroit to open up cap space. They have been linked to Brunson for a while and the moves New York made on draft day all line up for them to make a big run at Brunson once free agency opens up on June 30.

Jalen Brunson scores 24 in win

Jalen Brunson finished with 24 points (9-15 FG, 1-2 3PT, 5-6 FT), six rebounds, three assists, and a steal in the win over the Pistons.

Fantasy Impact

Brunson continues to be a great two-man to Luka Doncic. He has really thrived in a huge contract year for him. JB should finish the year strongly.

Jalen Brunson scores 21 in blowout loss Friday

Jalen Brunson totaled 21 points (9-13 FG, 2-2 FT, 1-3 3-PT), five boards, two assists and a steal on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Jalen Brunson is in the midst of a breakout season for the Mavericks, and is a big reason why they are within striking distance of the 3-seed in the West. Brunson currently sits at 0.92 fantasy points per minute, a career-high mark, and averages 16p/4r/5a on the season. His usage and production have remained the same since the departure of Kristaps Porzingis, which is somewhat surprising, but he has clearly been one of the top waiver-wire finds of 2022. The Mavs will visit Milwaukee on Sunday.
