Hornets Unwilling To Give Miles Bridges A Max Contract After He Uploaded Photo of Himself Drinking Lean

One of the guys that had a great season and was looking to get a max or close to a max contract Hornets Miles Bridges.

He had his best season and things were looking like he was going to get close to what he wanted.

Until he uploaded a pic of himself drinking lean.

The 24-year-old Charlotte Hornets player posted on his Instagram Stories featuring a joint and a styrofoam cup with pink/purple-ish colored liquid inside.

He would soon take to Twitter and responded to the uproar. “Pink lemonade,” Bridges wrote, apparently in attempt to dispel speculation that has since bubbled up online that the drink contained codeine. The Hornets player also ended up deleting the tweet.

Now it looks like he isn’t going to get the max from the Hornets. According to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, he will not be offered the max from the Hornets and will hit the free agent market which starts this Thursday. He could potentially get it from somewhere else like the Pistons but he should probably make sure not to upload any more lean pics.

The Charlotte Hornets finally have their new, and old, head coach in Steve Clifford, but will he get the chance to coach last season’s leading scorer?

Miles Bridges is set to his restricted free agency after a career-year, averaging 20.2 points, seven rebounds and 3.8 assists per game. The former Michigan State Spartan should have several suitors if the Hornets don’t plan on offering him a max contract.

On Monday’s episode of “NBA Today”, ESPN’s Brian Windhorst stated that at the moment, Bridges ‘is not being offered a max contract’ by the Hornets, opening up the door for him to go get a max offer elsewhere.

The Athletic’s Shams Charania previously reported that the Hornets were ‘hesitant’ to offer Bridges a max extension.

Now, if Bridges accepts a max contract offer from another team, the Hornets will have 48 hours to match the offer or facilitate a sign-and-trade.
