Miles Bridges is set to return to the Charlotte Hornets after a serving a 30-game NBA ban related to an allegation of domestic violence.
Bridges, 25, pled no contest to a felony domestic violence charge last year following an alleged incident with the mother of his children.
The forward was a free agent last year and did not play at all.
The NBA handed him a 30-game suspension in April but deemed he had already served 20 games of the ban.
Charlotte is 3-7 through the first 10 games of this season.

The Hornets said in a statement, ‘We are comfortable with Miles returning to play based on our current understanding of the facts of the recent allegations and remain in contact with the NBA as that matter proceeds through the court process.’
Last month, Bridges turned himself in after an arrest warrant was issued for an alleged protection order violation stemming from the domestic violence case.
Bridges appeared before a district court judge and was released on $1,000 bond.
The warrant had originally been issued on Jan. 2, but had not previously been served.
Bridges is currently serving three years of probation after pleading no contest in exchange for no jail time.
