"As I reported last week, even with room to sign a player to a max contract, the Pistons are unlikely to throw max offers at the likes of restricted free agents Deandre Ayton and Miles Bridges, though things can change. Instead, signs point to Detroit looking to add quality, veteran role players to pair with its young core as it furthers this rebuild."
Starting to hear that Hornets aren't giving out any max contracts so Miles has to consider taking a lot of money instead of max money.
Max money is all-star money. So for Miles, there goes at least two potential max contracts including hometown Detroit.
