New York Knicks, trade with Detroit to prepare for assault on Jalen Brunson

On the night the New York Knicks have completed a trade with the Detroit Pistons, yielding Alec Burks, Nerlens Noel, two future second-round picks (one 2023, originally the Pistons’ own, and one 2024 from Miami) and $6 million cash.

A move purely from a salary perspective, since with it the Knicks have freed up $19 million, now reaching about 30 million in space. The almost stated target is one: Jalen Brunson, for whom a four-year, $110 million total offer is ready as soon as free agency starts.

Brunson is coming off a career-best season in Dallas with 16.3 points and 4.8 assists average, the Mavericks would like to confirm him but at the moment New York is favored.
