NBA News Dallas Mavericks Optimistically due to possible extension of Jalen Brunson
Galen Brunson plays a strong season again for Dallas Mavericks, but could leave the franchise in the summer as a free agent. In the camp of the Mass, optimism should still prevail that the guard remains in the long term.
This reports Marc Stein in his newsletter at Substack. Accordingly, the Mass are confident that you will agree on a new contract sooner or later with Brunson. Brunson was pulled in 2018 with the 33rd pick and then received a working paper over four years.
In contrast to other two-round picks, Brunson’s contract did not include a team option for the fourth year, so Mass could not make the playmaker after his third season to a restricted free agent. Instead, Brunson will be in the summer of 2022 unrestricted free agent, if you can not agree on premature extension until then.
In theory, Brunson could sign a new contract for up to four years and $55.6 million at any time, and in the summer, it does not give a limit. In so far 17 games, the Guard indicated that he may be worth more than that maximum sum. According to Luka Ionic, Brunson has previously been the constant player and put 15.1 points, 4.4 rebounds and 5.1 assists on average.
According to stone, Brunson is also one of the leaders in the cabin of the Texans, another reason why Dallas would like to hold the playmaker. In this season, Brunson has just reached $1.8 million, but the 25-year-old is currently missing with a foot injury, which he moved to the L.a. Clippers at the game.
