“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.”

Yeah, it might be a shoot out tonight, and Tyronn Lue calls timeout early after Clippers give up back-to-back offensive rebounds that leads to Miles Bridges’ 2nd 3

Miles Bridges is scoring more than ever out of isolations. His explosive first step + decisive movement + pure strength = buckets. @Kevin O’Connor on the evolution of Bridges’s offensive game: https://t.co/Ib3WS0S0TR pic.twitter.com/uzVGHjQsBg6:15 PM

More on this storyline

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.” -via Bleacher Report / October 30, 2021

Marc Stein: League source confirms that Charlotte’s extension offer to Miles Bridges topped out at four years, $60 million before the Oct. 18 deadline, as @WindhorstESPN reported. -via Twitter @TheSteinLine / October 30, 2021

Chris Haynes: Charlotte Hornets and swingman Miles Bridges will not reach agreement on a rookie-scale extension before the deadline and he’ll become a restricted free-agent at the end of the 2021-22 season, league sources tell @YahooSports. -via Twitter @ChrisBHaynes / October 18, 2021
