The one-and-done is going for two. Long expected to spend only one year at Michigan State, star freshman Miles Bridges announced Thursday that he is officially bypassing the NBA Draft and returning for his sophomore season in East Lansing. And he brought the news to the people. On stage under Sparty, the bronzed statue at the corner Kalamazoo and Chestnut in East Lansing, Bridges told a crowd of roughly 800-1,000 fans, mostly students, that he'll be back in the green and white next year. "I want to finish business here," Bridges said. "I want to stay." The crowd cheered in response. Bridges' teammates and coaches stood on one side of the stage, smiling in unison. Bridges, 19, was expected to be selected in the late lottery, somewhere between the No. 10 and No. 14 overall selections. In that range, he was set to earn a guaranteed contract worth a minimum of $4.38 million. The max payout for the No. 10 overall pick is $8.05 million.
