Mychelle Johnson Weighs In Miles Bridges Amid Hornets Rumors

Charlotte Hornets star Miles Bridges pleaded no contest to a felony domestic violence charge this week.

The 24-year-old was ultimately sentenced to three years of probation with no jail time attached to it.

Bridges was originally accused of assaulting his then-partner Mychelle Johnson in front of their two children. A series of controversial photos of her emerged in the aftermath, which ended up complicating the proceedings.

Bridges is currently a restricted free agent. And in the midst of his legal problems coming to an end and the idea of him returning to the Hornets floating around, Johnson took to Twitter to offer her thoughts:

It will be interesting to see what route Charlotte ultimately takes here.

“One executive familiar with the Hornets’ thinking believes the 24-year-old forward is still viewed as a core piece,” Eric Pincus of Bleacher Report revealed recently. “Because Bridges is also subject to NBA punishment, Charlotte may want to sign him earlier than later, so he can begin a presumptive suspension and get back on the court sooner.”

This entire situation has been very messy. The speed with which Bridges allegedly got a new girl after this incident raised some eyebrows. As did Draymond Green’s involvement in the situation.

But that is the nature of how things work in the NBA.

The Hornets are one of the hottest young teams in the league today. And they want to win. Bridges could help them with that.

Sometimes in pro sports that is all that matters.

Will Bridges ultimately return to Charlotte this year after everything that has occurred?

Time will tell.
