What is next for Dallas Mavericks guard Jalen Brunson?

Jalen Brunson has gone from an average shooter with a solid mid-range game to a multi-level scorer with elite efficiency. He has shown that even with his size and athleticism that he is a threat to the defense.

With better conditioning and body control, JB can finish at the rim with the best of the NBA, knock down floaters in the mid-range, or spot up from three.

He can play alongside Luka Doncic and thrive or run the show if he’s given the spotlight. Brunson has been a phenomenal addition to this dark horse Mavericks team and will continue to impress.

The 24-year-old is that same winning player that came out of Villanova with two NCAA championships. Given more time and minutes, Brunson can go down as a truly special player for the Dallas Mavericks. He is already a fan favorite and if the Mavs continue to win, the rest of the NBA will have to take notice.

Dallas will have some interesting offseason decisions to make with their estimated cap, Luka’s rookie max extension looming, and Tim Hardaway’s re-signing, but Mavs fans can rest easy knowing they have every reason to keep Jalen Brunson around for the long haul.
