According to ESPN the Knicks are being investigated for tampering in their prized offseason signing.
Brunson had numerous releationships to the organization before joining, including his father Rick Brunson who was hired to be a Knicks assistant. Before the trade, the Knicks made numerous trades to open cap space for Brunson.
