Would Jalen Brunson re-sign with the Dallas Mavericks if the money was equal?
Brunson has a ton to consider during his free agency. The offers themselves will play a massive factor. Stein reported JB is expected to land a deal at or above Fred VanVleet’s four-year $85 million contract. If someone is willing to stretch closer to $100 million, that could be enough to sway him.
Expect Brunson to take into account role, fit, and ability to win when making his decision. Their ability to check off all his boxes is why the Mavericks are confident they will be able to re-sign the 25-year-old guard. The organization believes they are offering him the best situation.
If the money is equal, the New York Knicks will be in the running to sign Brunson. The 6’1 guard will have to choose between being the lead ball-handler and winning. Which does he pick? It is a debate, but the Mavs still have a slight edge even if the money is equal.
Jalen Brunson’s free agency is something Dallas Mavericks supporters will be watching closely. If the Knicks start clearing space, there will be worry building in Dallas.
