Miles Bridges renueva con Charlotte por tres años y 75 millones

Miles Bridges Agrees to Three-Year, $75 Million Deal to Stay With Hornets

Ni Los Angeles Clippers, ni los Cleveland Cavaliers, como venían sonando en los últimos días. Miles Bridges ha alcanzado un acuerdo para continuar su carrera en Charlotte Hornets por tres años adicionales y un total de 75 millones de dólares, informó Wojnarowski de la cadena ESPN.

El alero había recibido un gran interés en esta agencia libre de 2024, aunque nada ha terminado por concretarse y finalmente seguirá en las filas de los Hornets, quienes le seleccionaron en el Draft 2018 mediante su pick 12º.

Los Hornets, que han firmado como su nuevo técnico jefe a Charles Lee, siguen construyendo su joven proyecto con el objetivo de intentar alcanzar el play-in con LaMelo Ball, Brandon Miller, Mark Williams o los recién llegados Tidjane Salaun, Josh Green o el veterano Reggie Jackson.

El año pasado, tras superar sus problemas con la justicia, Bridges obtuvo los mejores promedios anotadores de su carrera NBA con 21,4 puntos por encuentro; a los que sumó 7,3 rebotes, 3,3 asistencias y un robo de balón en 37 minutos por jornada.

The Charlotte Hornets are buying back into the Miles Bridges business and all that comes with it. Last weekend, Bridges agreed to a three-year, $75 million contract to stay with the Hornets, per multiple reports. The deal does not include a player or team option.

Bridges averaged 21 points (on 46/35/83 shooting splits), 7.3 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 37.4 minutes over 69 games for the Charlotte Hornets this past season.

Of course, he missed the first 10 games of the season, plus the entire 2022-23 campaign, for pleading no contest to a brutal felony domestic violence charge. Upon his return to the NBA, he allegedly violated a resulting protective order, though that charge was dropped this past February for insufficient evidence.

In a re-introductory news conference this past season, Bridges said of the allegations, “I can’t control what comes out about me,” and suggested his on-court effort would sway public opinion in his favor.

“I know a lot of people feel a [certain] way about me being back, and I understand that,” said Bridges. “And like I said before: I have to gain their trust back, so I’m just going out there and looking to play. I feel like if I can get us some more wins, I feel like people’s perspective will change a little bit on me.”
