The Hornets are one of the most fun teams to watch in the NBA, as they feature the best offense in the league. One of the reasons is the development of Miles Bridges, who in his fourth season, is the front runner for the NBA Most Improved Player, and is arguably the best game in-game dunker in the NBA. With his improved play, comes the discussion of his contract, as his option wasn’t picked up, after declining a four-year, $60 million dollar extension over the summer. Bridges is a running mate of LaMelo Ball, and is clearly a core member of the Hornets future, as they try to build a contender in the Eastern Conference. Michael Jordan has long said that he’s not willing to spend over the cap unless the team is a championship contender, which as of today, the Hornets aren’t. That has raised the concern, that Miles may walk in free agency this summer. Rod Boone, beat writer for the Hornets for the Charlotte Observer, joined the Nick Wilson show to discuss that, and had this to say:

“I don’t see that happening. The only what that happens to me, is if there a rift between his camp, and the Hornets, but I don’t know why that would happen. Miles love it here. Miles wants to be here.”
