The Charlotte Hornets have refuted a report from ESPN that they are engaged in contract talks with Miles Bridges.

Bridges pled no contest to a felony domestic violence charge in November. Bridges' partner posted a series of images to Instagram detailing the abuse, which included a photo of a hospital report and injuries of a concussion, broken nose, rib contusion and bruising.

“We have not been engaged in contract negotiations with Miles Bridges,” the Hornets told the Charlotte Observer in a statement this week.

The Hornets declined to comment on the possibility of bringing Bridges back next season.
