Virtually ever since Scott Fitterer became the general manager of the Carolina Panthers, one of the things he's been adamant about is that Brian Burns is going to be in Carolina for the foreseeable future. Evidence of that, was the trade deadline last year, when the Rams offered Carolina, two first-round picks, along with a second, and Carolina declined the offer. The fifth-year pass rusher out of Florida State is getting ready for the 2023 season, and he's awaiting a new contract after Carolina picked up his fifth-year option, which is set to pay him $16 million dollars. Last year Burns recorded 12.5 sacks and was named to his second Pro Bowl, as he's proven in his young NFL career, that he can be a productive player, at the premium position on the defensive side of the football. With all of that in mind, how much should he get paid?
We're only nine days away from the 2023 NBA Draft, and yesterday, Shams Charania of The Athletic, reported that the New Orleans Pelicans, are interested in trading up to either #2 or #3, to draft Scoot Henderson. Of course, by now you know that the Hornets own the #2 pick, and it isn't clear what direction they are going next Thursday night. Should Charlotte be interested in trading away the #2 pick, for either Zion Williamson or Brandon Ingram? Both have ties to the area, with both having played their college basketball at Duke and Williamson, being from Spartanburg, SC, and Ingram from Kinston, NC.
With the belief around the NBA, that Miles Bridges will be back in Charlotte for the 2023-24 season, a lot of people are starting to speculate about the possible contract Bridges will receive. Before his domestic violence issue, on the eve of free agency last summer, Bridges was in line to receive a max contract from Charlotte, after Bridges had a career year. After a year away from basketball, Bridges is still in line to get a big payday, as Jake Fischer of Yahoo! Sports, expects him to make around $25 million dollars, and John Hollinger of The Athletic, echoed that belief, saying he could receive a contract worth $29 million dollars annually. Is this right? Or should Bridges be paid less, after his off-the-court issue?
