Brunson is already a fait accompli – and can confirm Knicks interest in Dejounte Murray – as reported by @Marc Stein last week and @Ian Begley Today. Who wouldn’t be interested? Some executives think it’s a smokescreen. Murray has two years on $16 million each left on his current deal. † 15:21

The decision on Danilo Gallinari’s guarantee is for the Hawks tomorrow, but player/team can agree to push it back. Danilo has guaranteed $5 million – the Hawks may need to guarantee more to match in trade (say it was Dejounte Murray, Gallo should have locked up $11.6 million*) *ATL under tax – 16:04

I am completely blown away by the idea of the Spurs trading Dejounte Murray to refuel for a potential 28 percent chance of landing Wembanyama or Henderson. You don’t trade young All Stars. You build around it – 15:33

One of my favorite things about Dejounte Murray perhaps going to Atlanta is that pairing Trae Young with a commonly used, limited-shooting point guard basically forces him to get off the ball. † 16:41
