Cavs Eyeing C.J. Miles, Carlos Delfino

The Cavaliers continue to shop for small forwards, and aren't necessarily targeting players to replace Alonzo Gee, says Terry Pluto of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. According to Pluto, the Cavs may add a small forward in addition to Gee, and are eyeing C.J. Miles and Carlos Delfino.

This isn't the first time we've heard about Cleveland's interest in Miles, who met with the Cavs last week. While the Cavs could view Miles as a Plan B if they fail to come to terms with Gee, it seems unlikely that the restricted free agent will slip away, as the team is prepared to match any offer sheet he signs. So it's not surprising that Pluto suggests the Cavs could be interested in signing both players. Still, Miles may be headed elsewhere, as he's said to be close to a decision and drawing serious interest from the Lakers.

Delfino, meanwhile, has reportedly received some interest from the Rockets and others, but has yet to find the multiyear deal he's seeking. With a few expiring contracts coming off their books at the end of 2012/13, the Cavs have the flexibility to make Delfino a multiyear offer if they so choose, but the club may view that as an unnecessary commitment for a non-core player.
