Mavs playing solid D so far, limiting GS to 40% in the 1H. Luka and Jalen Brunson both have 13 pts. Reggie Bullock has bounced back from G3 with 3 made 3s in the first half. At halftime, Mavs 62 Warriors 47. Brad Davis and I will have the 2nd half shortly on @theeagledallas10:10 PM

“I have never seen two base-year players traded for each other on a sign-and-trade”: A Mitchell Robinson-for-Jalen Brunson sign-and-trade sounds appetizing but there’s complications #NBA #Knicks nypost.com/2022/05/24/mit…4:35 PM

Callie Caplan: Jalen Brunson, free-agent to be: “When it happens, it happens. I’m not worried about it right now. Honestly, at this point, how I feel, I’m really happy that I got to play with these guys, and the things that we did this year, that’s all I’m really focused on right now.” -via Twitter @CallieCaplan / May 27, 2022

The Knicks executives’ controversial appearance in Dallas also raised eyebrows because of the expectation that New York will aggressively pursue Mavericks ball-handler Jalen Brunson as an unrestricted free agent. One source with knowledge of the Knicks front office even suggested to B/R that New York’s efforts before the February trade deadline were primarily geared toward freeing ample cap space to offer Brunson a competitive contract this July. -via Bleacher Report / May 11, 2022
