To be determined
Brunson has been a consistent presence on the Dallas bench this season, averaging 15.1 points, 4.7 assists and 4.4 rebounds per game. With Luka Doncic (ankle) on the verge of running out of time for a bit, the Mavericks will be looking for players to step up and handle an increased offensive workload, and Brunson does the trick. The Villanova product has been effective this season when it sees an increase in the rate of use, which will absolutely be the case with Doncic sidelined. Brunson is a whopping $ 5,700 worth against a Suns team that ranks 27th in the guard authorized DKFP.
