Both Mark Cuban and Nico Harrison pointed out at the end of the course that the renewal of Brunson was a priority objective for them, and that they were willing to offer him a new contract for 5 years (they retain their Bird rights) after he rejected a 4-year extension. courses and 55.5 million dollars on the deadline, the same that his partner Dorian Finney-Smith did accept.
