Could Jalen Brunson be on his way to New York this summer?

New York Knicks big man Mitchell Robinson is set to be a free agent in the offseason, and according to New York Daily News’ Stefon Bondy on the HoopsHype podcast, the Dallas Mavericks already have been linked as potential suitors.

In 61 appearances for the Knicks this season, Mitchell has posted averages of 8.4 points, 8.8 rebounds, and 1.7 blocks in 25.2 minutes per game. He’s doing so while converting at a 76.9 percent clip from the floor.

There are significant limitations the Mavericks face when evaluating their outlook of acquiring Robinson. Given the desire to keep Jalen Brunson is a factor, Dallas is already $1.9 million from the tax apron before getting a new deal done with him and cannot cross that threshold in a sign-and-trade for Robinson.
