Professional Playing Career

Brunson (full name: Eric Daniel Brunson) graduated from Temple University. Undrafted in 1995, he played in Australia in 1995-96, and in the CBA next season. He was signed as a free agent by the Portland Trail Blazers in 1997-98, playing again in the CBA at the start of the 1998-99 season. Brunson then signed with the New York Knicks, and was a member of the 1999 Eastern Conference championship team. In 2000-01, he started off with the Boston Celtics, but finished the season with the Knicks again. He rejoined the Trail Blazers in 2001-02. He then signed with the Chicago Bulls the next season, splitting between the Bulls and the Toronto Raptors in 2003-04, before moving on to the Los Angeles Clippers in 2004-05. A breakout season in which he averaged a career-high 5.5 points per game landed him a 2005-06 contract with the Seattle SuperSonics, but only appeared in four games due to injury. On February 28, 2006, the Sonics waived Brunson. He was subsequently signed by the Houston Rockets, finishing his ninth and final season as a professional basketball player.

Coaching career

From January to April 2007, Brunson worked as an assistant coach with the Denver Nuggets, focusing on player development. From 2007 to 2009, he was with the University of Virginia as the Cavaliers’ director of basketball operations. In May 2009, Brunson was hired as Assistant Coach for the Hartford Hawks men's basketball team.
