Charlotte Hornets forward Miles Bridges signed his $7.9-million qualifying offer for the 2023-24 season, his agent told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Hornets and Bridges remained far apart in extension talks, sources told Wojnarowski. The 25-year-old will become an unrestricted free agent in 2024 and can veto any trade during the upcoming season, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania.

Bridges missed the entire 2022-23 campaign as he remained unsigned. The NBA suspended him in April for 30 games after police arrested him last year for a domestic violence incident.
