There was something different about those players compared to those that typically appear on this website: They were in prison. And so was Ferranti himself. After two years as a fugitive, Ferranti was captured and convicted of running a criminal enterprise that dealt in LSD in 1993. A first-time, non-violent offender, Ferranti has spent the last 21 years of his life behind bars. But that’s coming to an end now. Although technically not a free man until January 2015, Ferranti is now allowed to leave prison for extended periods and is already working two jobs in St. Louis, Missouri. He spoke with HoopsHype about his new life, his years in jail and his future projects.

Hornets not offering Miles Bridges a max deal?

Speaking via ESPN, Windhorst said Monday: “Let’s take a look at Miles Bridges. He’s not being offered, from what I’m told, a max contract from the Charlotte Hornets right now. So, he’s going to go out into the market place, starting on Thursday or Friday, and see if he can get that offer from somewhere else.”
The Athletic conducted a poll, asking 16 officials in NBA front offices what they would deem a fair number for Barrett in an extension this summer or fall. Responses ranged from $15 million to $30 million a year. No one advocated for the Knicks to give him the max. Exactly half of the responses were a nice, clean four years, $100 million, making it by far the most common proposal from the polled executives.
