After suggesting the Jazz didn't treat him right this season and taking a shot at coach Tyrone Corbin's communication skills, C.J. Miles appears likely to sign with another team as an unrestricted free agent this summer. One potential destination that intrigues the Texas native is his hometown Mavericks, as he told Dirk Facer of the Deseret News.
"If that was an issue that came up I definitely would look at it. Who wouldn't, especially with the way that team is built now," Miles said. "They're aging a little bit and I'm pretty sure they're going to be looking for some guys that do some of the things I do."
Although he set career highs in PPG (12.8), MPG (25.2), and PER (14.4) in 2010/11, Miles wasn't quite as productive this season, averaging 9.1 points per contest and shooting just 38.1% from the floor, his lowest mark since 2006/07. Still, even after seven seasons with the Jazz, Miles is only 25 years old, making him one of the younger unrestricted free agents on the market. Coming off a four-year, $14.8MM contract in Utah, he's a good bet to find another multiyear deal this offseason.
