Charlotte Hornets rookie Miles Bridges plans to compete in this year's Slam Dunk contest, league sources told Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

Bridges was sent to Charlotte in a draft-day deal after the Los Angeles Clippers selected him with the 12th overall pick.

The 20-year-old is averaging 6.7 points per game on 44.6 percent shooting and has made his share of highlight-worthy dunks during his rookie campaign.
