Reggie Bullock thinks they can make up for Brunson’s departure

Reggie Bullock has recently chatted for HoopsHype about what the signing of Jalen Brunson by the New York Knicks means. The Dallas Mavericks forward believes they can make up for his absence, and has singled out one teammate in particular: Tim Hardaway Jr., who will be ready to return after overcoming a serious injury to his left foot.

“Jalen (Brunson) was great as a player both on and off the court. He will always be a brother to me. It’s basketball and this is a business. He has gone to New York, which is another great team. I come from there and he is going to play for a great coach like Tom Thibodeau », Bullock pointed out.

“But Tim (Hardaway Jr.) is coming back this year. He is a great shooter and a great outside scorer for us. He was injured, but I know he will come back one hundred percent,” he acknowledged.

In addition to the return of the aforementioned Hardaway Jr., the Mavs have been reinforced in this free agency with two notable interiors: Christian Wood and JaVale McGee. Bullock believes the key is “keeping the core” to get back into the postseason again.

“One of our main goals was to be in the playoffs, and we achieved it. In our minds this summer we are only three games away from playing in the Finals. We had a great season. We have a great coach and a great organization », he concluded.
