The New York Knicks are likely to be fined for tampering during their recruitment of Jalen Brunson. The Athletic’s Tim Cato and Fred Katz discussed the possibility, as well as the circumstances surrounding Brunson leaving Dallas for New York. Here’s Katz on how the Mavericks are feeling via The Athletic:

From what I’ve gathered, the Mavericks are quite frustrated with the Knicks — and not just because reports of a finished deal came out before New York was even allowed to speak with Brunson (though I am not sure how tampering rules account for father-son relationships, and this situation involves two of those). Dallas wasn’t thrilled about Knicks executive William “World Wide Wes” Wesley showing up courtside to a Mavs-Jazz playoff game, either.

Look, the Mavericks should be disappointed that Brunson got away, but it’s not like they didn’t have a chance to pitch him on a long term future with the franchise since he’s been on their team, in their locker room, for four years. If you can’t convince him there’s a brighter future in Dallas than there is with the Knicks, like just about everyone else in the world believes there is, then that’s your own fault. Or it’s not because Brunson wanted to play for his father or in New York and there was nothing you ever could have done. Is that fair? It’s either completely the Mavericks’ fault or not their fault at all. Yeah, that covers it.

Anyway, the whining about tampering is hilarious. Everyone does it. If the shoe was on the other foot and the Mavericks were the ones not-so-secretly negotiating with an impending free agent, they wouldn’t be so frustrated. You know, like they might have done leading into the whole DeAndre Jordan debacle a few years back. Here are some media tweets referencing owner Mark Cuban’s personal relationship with agent Dan Fegan.
