According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the New York Knicks and Detroit Pistons have agreed to a trade.
Woj (first tweet): "The Knicks are trading center Nerlens Noel and guard Alec Burks to the Pistons, sources tell ESPN.
The Knicks will unload $19M more in salary, clearing the way for cap space to try and sign free agent guard Jalen Brunson.
Woj (second tweet): The Knicks are including two future second-round picks and cash in the deal to incentivize the Pistons, sources tell ESPN."
Woj (third tweet): "New York will send Detroit back its 2023 second-round pick, a 2024 second-round pick via Miami and $6 million, sources tell ESPN."
According to Wojnarowski, the Knicks will now pursue Dallas Mavericks restricted free-agent Jalen Brunson with the cap space.
Brunson played a huge role in the Mavs making the Western Conference Finals, and his value on the market will be very high.
He is just 25-years-old, and was a second-round pick in 2018 out of Villanova.
In college, he won two National Titles and was one of the best point guards in the entire nation.
