Dallas Mavericks rookie point guard Jalen Brunson put on a must-see a ball-handling display at the Mavs Hoop Camp on June 7.
Dallas Mavericks fans knew Jalen Brunson could ball when they drafted him in 2018. The second round pick won two NCAA titles while playing for Villanova, but few expected the rookie season Brunson produced. He averaged 9.3 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 3.2 assists per game for the year in 21.8 minutes a night.
Brunson’s strong close to the season left Mavs supporters beaming with excitement. From Jan. 31 to the end of the season, he averaged 13.2 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 4.5 assists per game in 28.9 minutes a night. Brunson also shot 48.8 percent from the field and 35.2 percent on his 3-pointers. He was a second round steal because Brunson will be a fixture of the Mavericks rotation for the next decade-plus.

Shows off his handles
The Mavericks have kicked off their summer Hoop Camps. The team runs them all over the area from June until early August. More information about the camps can be found here.
Jalen Brunson was helping out at the events last week. He put on a show for the campers which can be seen below courtesy of the Mavericks official Twitter.
Remind me to never try to guard Brunson. Those handles are too much. Props go out to Brunson for helping out at the camp and for putting on a show for the children.
Dallas Mavericks guard Jalen Brunson put on a ball-handling display at the Mavs Hoop Camp last week. Brunson and the other Mavericks will be working the camps throughout the summer, so stay tuned for more.
Expect Brunson to be looking to expand his role in his second season. He played well as a starter down the stretch. Free agency will play a significant part in determining Brunson’s role going forward. If the Mavs acquire an All-Star point guard, Brunson will come off the bench. Standing pat for Dallas means Brunson is likely a member of the starting five.
Fans should stay tuned for all that and plenty more at The Smoking Cuban this summer.
