Miles Bridges: 'I'm not worried about money'

“I’m not worried about the money,” Bridges told The Undefeated after getting 32 points, nine rebounds and making five 3-pointers in a 114-92 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Nov. 3. “I’m really just worried about playing the right way and winning. I will let my agent worry about all that stuff and just worry about the game.”
According to Bridges, a key to his major improvement is that the Hornets’ coaching staff and his teammates “believe and trust in him.” That has helped him feel comfortable to play freely and aggressively. “My biggest growth is my decision-making and my playmaking,” Bridges said. “Me trying to make the right play, when to score, when to pass. I feel like I got better at that. But I can always get better at my defense. My defense and my rebounding gets me going throughout the game. I got to do a better job coming out from the first quarter and getting better from there.”
Bridges regularly took part in two-a-day workouts on the basketball court and in the weight room for 5-6 hours during the offseason in Charlotte, Miami and Los Angeles with basketball trainers Brandon Cavanaugh and Chris Johnson, a source told The Undefeated. Bridges also hired a chef who made him healthy meals daily and he lost about 10 to 12 pounds. He tried to be a leader by spending a lot of time with his Hornets teammates during the offseason and played in the Miami Pro League summer pro-am.

Hornets had lowball offer for Miles Bridges

The Charlotte Hornets offered Miles Bridges a four-year, $60 million contract extension, ESPN’s Brian Windhorst reported on his podcast The Hoop Collective (via RealGM). “When he was in negotiations for his extensions a couple of weeks ago, I’m told the Hornets’ baseline offer was four years, $60 million,” Windhorst said. “Which is $15 million per year. If you look at what Mikal Bridges, which we’ve compared him to during his career, got … which some people in the league feel is an overpay.”
