Jalen Brunson will not extend his contract with the Knicks

The 2024 NBA Draft is split in two, with first-round picks selected on June 26 and second-round picks the following day, and the 24-hour gap between one round of picks and the next could increase the number of trades built around the Draft.

The agreement that binds Brunson to New York expires in June 2025, and the player can also exercise his player option for the following 2025-26 season. The Knicks, however, would like to be able to extend the contract with their clear leader as soon as possible.

If he were to extend his contract with the Knicks already this summer, Brunson could at most sign a 5-year agreement for 181 million dollars, while in the summer of 2025 the five-year extension could potentially be worth up to 270 million.
