Team that will pursue Dallas Mavericks guard Jalen Brunson in free agency: 1. Knicks

The New York Knicks are rumored to be the frontrunners to lure Brunson away from the Mavericks this summer. President Leon Rose has known JB since he was a child as he served as his father Rick’s agent. There have been plenty of rumblings ever since Rose took the Knicks front office that they were interested in acquiring Brunson.

New York is searching for a point guard and will be looking to make moves this summer after their recent struggles. Kemba Walker could be on his way out, but the Knicks are not going to have cap space. They would need to pull off a sign-and-trade to acquire Brunson.

New York spent big last offseason, and it did not work out. They will be looking to shed some of those contracts and could be willing to give up draft picks to make it happen. The Dallas Mavericks want to keep JB, but if he wants to join the Knicks, New York will have plenty to offer in a potential deal.
