Free agent forward Miles Bridges will return to Charlotte, signing a three-year deal with the Hornets worth $75 million, according to multiple reports Saturday.

Bridges, 26, had explored alternative scenarios before ultimately deciding to remain in Charlotte, where he’s coming off a productive season after an extensive period of turmoil off the court.

After pleading no contest to felony domestic abuse charges, Bridges didn’t play at all in the 2022-23 season and was suspended for Charlotte’s first 10 games last season.

However, the former Michigan State standout was a model of consistency on the court after returning. In 69 games (67 starts), Bridges averaged career highs of 21 points and 7.3 rebounds and added 3.3 assists per game.

The 12th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, Bridges has career averages of 14.8 points, 6.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game in 360 games (255 starts) with the Hornets, who acquired him from the Los Angeles Clippers on draft day.
