If you are a fan of the Charlotte Hornets, you may have heard about Miles Bridges. He was a restricted free agent with the team this summer. During his time with the Hornets, he averaged 13 points and 5.6 rebounds per game. However, his career has been marred by several incidents. He was fined $50,000 for throwing a mouthpiece into the crowd after being ejected during a game. He is also charged with two counts of child abuse and injuring the parent of a child.
Miles Bridges is a restricted free agent with the Charlotte Hornets
The Charlotte Hornets have some interesting options when it comes to free agents, and one of them is 24-year-old forward Miles Bridges. The Hornets have tried the D’Angelo Russell experiment and it did not pan out, but they could use some help and could sign Bridges, who could be a borderline All-Star. While it is hard to gauge how much money he will bring, he should be worth at least half of that amount.
If the Charlotte Hornets match an offer sheet that another team signs, Michael Bridges would be eligible for a five-year, $173-million deal. However, his arrest came just one day before the Hornets’ free agency negotiations began. Fortunately, the Hornets acted quickly enough to hand him a qualifying offer, which would allow them to match any offer sheet. This move could prevent competing teams from signing Bridges, and it could encourage rival suitors to match the offer.
He averaged 13.4 points and 5.6 rebounds a game
With the No. 12 overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, Miles Bridges signed with the Los Angeles Clippers. He stayed in Charlotte for his first four seasons, averaging 13.4 points and 5.6 rebounds per game. In 2021-22, he was named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week. He finished the season ranked 15th in the league with 1,613 points. In addition, he averaged 3.8 assists per game.
Bridges also ranked among the NBA’s top-scoring big men. Last season, he averaged 13.4 points and 5.6 rebounds per game. Despite his small size, he had a solid season. Last year, he averaged 13.4 points and 5.6 rebounds, along with 2.3 assists. However, he isn’t going to get much better than last year.
He was fined $50,000 for throwing a mouthpiece into the crowd after being ejected from a game
After being ejected from a game in Atlanta, Charlotte Hornets forward Miles Bridges threw a mouthpiece into the crowd. This occurred shortly after he was fouled twice during the game and was the reason for his ejection. Bridges apologized after the game and during his exit interview.
The NBA fined Bridges $50,000 for the incident, which occurred after he was ejected from the game. After the game, he apologized on Instagram to a female fan and told her he was sorry for the incident. The Hornets’ public relations department is trying to reach Bridges. The WHO issued a public health alert about Covid after the incident.
He is charged with injuring a child’s parent and two counts of child abuse
The Detroit Pistons point guard is accused of attacking his girlfriend in front of the children in his care. Bridges was arrested in June and released on $130,000 bail for an incident that he denies committing. He also faces charges of injuring a child’s parent and two counts of child abuse. The alleged assault took place in front of the children.
The NBA player is facing felony charges for injuring a child’s parent, a second charge of child abuse, and one count of domestic violence. Bridges was arrested on June 29 and posted $130,000 bail. He is due to appear in court on Wednesday. In the meantime, he has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The Hornets had a qualifying offer for Bridges before his arrest. After a season in which he averaged 20 points and pulled down seven rebounds per game, he was expected to sign a lucrative contract. He was regarded as one of the top young stars in the NBA, and was expected to be a key part of Charlotte’s future. His arrest comes a day before the start of free agency negotiations. The Hornets had made a qualifying offer to him before the incident took place. He was reportedly worth $173 million over five years.
