http://sports.yahoo.com/

After his agent – Wealthy Paul – talked him out of accepting a (reportedly $60 million) contract extension final offseason, Miles Bridges is ready to earn way more as a restricted free agent this summer time.

Possibly not with the Hornets, although.

Shams Charania of The Athletic:

Rival executives anticipate Hornets restricted free agent Miles Bridges to command a most — or near-max — deal in July, and sources stated there’s hesitancy from Charlotte to match a max sheet.

A max supply sheet initiatives to be price about $131 million over 4 years. The Hornets must be hesitant about matching.

They need to additionally most likely match.

Bridges hasn’t but confirmed to be price fairly that a lot. However he’s a 24-year-old athletic and versatile ahead who has proven a strong track record of improvement and  has clear areas the place he can maintain creating (protection, 3-point taking pictures). Charlotte has no good avenue for buying one other participant of his caliber. Even when letting Miles go, the Hornets wouldn’t mission to have main cap area and must be too good to land a excessive lottery seed.

Charlotte not too long ago made the controversial decision to let Kemba Walker go away fairly than give him a giant contract. That paid off and will give the Hornets some advantage of the doubt. However Bridges is a lot youthful than Walker. Simply because a budget transfer labored earlier than doesn’t imply it’s the best transfer once more.

In equity to Charlotte, this report won’t really replicate the staff’s plan. Bridges has incentive to persuade different groups the Hornets won’t match a max supply sheet. If everybody believes Charlotte will match, different groups will hesitate to waste their time with a Bridges supply sheet. This report is virtually begging groups to attempt to poach Bridges – which, supply sheet matched or not, will make him richer.
