Miles Bridges Arrested Less Than 24 Hours Before Free Agency For Felony Domestic Violence

Miles Bridges Arrested Less Than 24 Hours Before Free Agency For Felony Domestic Violence

Miles Bridges was in line for almost a $100 million dollar contract offer from either the Charlotte Hornets or some other team in the league in the 2022 offseason. Despite problematic behavior that saw Bridges post about drinking lean and smoking weed on his Instagram story, the forward's stock was extremely high in the league.

All of that has been flushed down the toilet after Bridges was arrested for alleged domestic violence against an unnamed woman. It's also been alleged that Miles fled the scene after his violent acts on the woman that needed medical attention. He later turned himself in and was released on $130,000 bail, according to TMZ

Bridges is coming off a season where he averaged 20.2 points, 7 rebounds, and 3.8 assists. He would have received a massive contract offer this summer but that might just be off the table now considering the seriousness of the charge against him.

This news is extremely disappointing on all fronts. Bridges putting his hands on a woman is reprehensible and his perception around the league will most definitely be impacted, be it among the player or the executives that prepare the finer details behind the contract offers these players get.

Whether any team offers him big money now is the main question. The battle for his signature seemed to have been between Detroit and Charlotte, with Charlotte being able to offer more money. Bridges had teased a move to Detroit, his home state, on IG earlier.

Miles will definitely see the Hornets offer him the qualifying offer. if no team comes in with a better offer, Bridges will have to sign that offer sheet and spend another year in Charlotte. There will be expectations on the league to have Bridges suffer some sort of consequences from various parties. We will have to wait and see how this incident affects the career of Miles Bridges, who was less than a day away from signing a contract for generational money.
