Miles Bridges is focusing in on a very specific topic on Twitter this week. The Hornets forward is looking to land a contract extension in Chalotte following his most productive year to date.

The fourth-year player will enter year five in 2022 after posting 20.2 points per game to lead the team while chipping in 7.0 rebounds and 3.8 assists.

Last year, Bridges was talked out of accepting a $60 million extension by his agent, a move that now looks like it’s going to pay off. He should see much more value after last year’s breakout performance, and he’s asking for a near max offer deal.

Per Shams Charania of The Athletic:

Rival executives expect Hornets restricted free agent Miles Bridges to command a maximum — or near-max — deal in July, and sources said there’s hesitancy from Charlotte to match a max sheet.

That could be something north of $130 million over four years, more than doubling last season’s reported offer.

The problem is that the Hornets are hesitant to give the big man that kind of money. That doesn’t mean they won’t, but it allows other teams to try and lure Bridges away from Charlotte.

The news of Bridges’ contract negotiations has made headlines on social media. But it’s Bridges, himself, who’s making the most noise.

Bridges is obviously keeping the receipts of his haters. If he does land a max contract in Charlotte, you can bet he’ll remember those that doubted.
