NBA to Investigate Knicks’ Jalen Brunson Signing, Per Report

Jalen Brunson Knicks Investigation

The NBA League Office is going to investigate the New York Knicks’ signing of guard Jalen Brunson, per a report from Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

The Knicks signed Brunson to a four-year, $104 million contract shortly after free-agency began.

There was rampant speculation that Brunson had negotiated with the Knicks prior to the start of free-agency, thus prompting the League Office’s response.

Brunson, 25, had a breakout fourth season with the Dallas Mavericks, averaging 16.3 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 4.8 assists on 50%/37%/84% shooting splits.

In the first round of the 2021-22 NBA playoffs, Brunson averaged 27.8 points, leading the Mavericks past the Utah Jazz in six games.

But despite Brunson’s impressive play, few pundits expected the Knicks would have many competitors; especially once they decided to offer him a contract north of $100 million.

Needless to say, it would be a major blow to the Knicks if they lost additional assets for tampering with Brunson.
