The NBA suddenly decided to reduce the punishment of Miles Bridges (forward, 201cm, 102kg).
According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania먹튀검증, the NBA is reducing Bridges’ suspension by 10 games from his 30-game suspension.
Bridges was arrested in Los Angeles last summer for domestic violence. He was able to secure a new long-term contract, but this prevented him from signing a new one in the offseason. Charlotte offered a qualifying offer last summer, but did not sign a contract.
Charlotte, the original team, did not sign a new contract first, and other clubs did not call him. Looking at what the wife announced right away in early July, the situation was by no means light. A verdict was given against him in November. He avoided a prison sentence. He was given three years probation instead, and it was determined that he would need community service and drug testing, as well as training in domestic violence counseling and parenting.
During the season, the possibility of him signing with another team was also discussed. However, no club was willing to sign a contract. In late December, it was reported that Charlotte and Bridges would renew their contracts. However, Charlotte never signed a contract. It was also confirmed that the news that the contract would be signed came from Bridges and his agency, not from Charlotte.
Bridges has improved year over year, and last offseason he was thought to win a $20 million-per-year contract. However, when he committed a serious crime, he faced a major crisis in his future career as a player. In addition, he had to receive a 30-game suspension from the NBA, so even if he was suspended during last season, no team was willing to sign a contract.
However, the NBA suddenly reduced Bridges’ suspension to 10 games this time. Since he hasn’t played this season, it makes sense for him to have his punishment reduced. However, in the meantime, the NBA has applied the matter immediately after the contract was signed in such a situation. It is a somewhat unexpected decision, but it is understood that the NBA has raised Bridges’ hand to some extent. In other words, if he signs a contract this summer, his return is expected to be easy.
He appeared in 80 games last season. He started all of them and recorded 20.2 points (.491 .331 .802), 7 rebounds and 3.8 assists in 35.5 minutes per game. Depending on the situation, he played an active part in my outskirts. It was the best performance of his career, averaging over 20 points for the first time since his entry into the NBA. If Charlotte catches him this summer, he’s worth filling his perimeter power.
