“The Charlotte Hornets are aware of the situation involving Miles Bridges,” the Charlotte Hornets said in a release. “We are in the process of gathering additional information. We will have no further comment at this time.”
Since its creation, the Spartans are 9-12 all-time in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge with their last win against Louisville at home last season.
It appears as if both Brown and Bingham will get their chance to prove themselves as free agents in the NBA Summer League.
Michigan State guard Max Christie has been drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers as the 35th overall pick in the second round of the 2022 NBA Draft.
The Spartans have lost two big men, senior Marcus Bingham Jr. and junior Julius Marble II, so far this offseason and will need as many bodies as possible in the frontcourt next season.
While the Lansing area has benefitted from Johnson’s success and outreach, the former scrappy guard from Sexton High School praises his hometown as well.
With senior center Marcus Bingham Jr.'s departure last month, Michigan State is tasked with adding more size after Marble's decision to transfer.
The Spartans will now begin the search for someone to fill Associate Head Coach Dwayne Stephens' role as the offseason starts shortly.
Bingham joins fellow senior Gabe Brown in the NBA draft waters after Brown announced his decision last week. Senior forward Joey Hauser is the only remaining senior yet to decide if he will exercise his extra year of eligibility.
