The New York Knicks are reportedly preparing a massive free-agency offer for star guard Jalen Brunson.

According to Marc Stein, the Knicks are getting ready to offer the fifth-year guard a four-year, $100 million contract.

The NBA world took to Twitter to react to this news.

"Idk how I feel about it, he’s a talented player and only 25 but man I wish we would’ve gave Quick a shot to run some PG during the season to see what we got," one Knicks fan wrote.

"That’s a fair contract. Moving mountains to offer him this fair deal, maybe slight overpay, is still a questionable offseason a strategy," another added.

"So happy I’m not a Knicks fan," another said.

Earlier this week, the idea of Brunson re-signing with the Dallas Mavericks was reported as a basically a "done deal." That being said, the Knicks remain the frontrunner as a potential outside suitor to land the 25-year-old guard.

The Knicks hired Brunson's father, Rick Brunson, as an assistant coach earlier this offseason.

Brunson averaged a career-high 16.3 points per game alongside Luka Doncic in his contract season. Whatever contract he signs this offseason, he no doubt earned this payday.

The Knicks made a series of draft-night moves on Thursday night that suggested they're clearing cap space to potentially go after a big-name free agent this offseason.
