C.J. Miles Drawing Interest From Heat, Hawks, Others

Veteran swingman C.J. Miles is receiving interest from a handful of teams, according to Darren Wolfson of 5 Eyewitness News, who reports (via Twitter) that the Heat, Hawks, and Kings are among the teams in the mix. The Timberwolves also maintain interest in Miles, but don’t currently have the cap flexibility to make a competitive offer, Wolfson notes.

Miles, 30, hits the free agent market this summer after one of the strongest seasons of his career. In 76 games (29 starts) for the Pacers, the 6’6″ sharpshooter averaged 10.7 PPG and 3.0 RPG, converting a career-best 41.3% of his three-point attempts.

The Heat, Hawks, and Kings all have cap room left over, though Miami has a number of balls up in the air as the club waits for Gordon Hayward‘s decision. As for the Wolves, their commitments to Jeff Teague and Taj Gibson have eaten up virtually all of their cap space, so the most they could offer Miles – without moving salary or working out a sign-and-trade – would likely be the $4.3MM room exception.

Miles is expected to take free agent visits soon, according to Wolfson.

    It was reported before that the Pacers have interest in young players who haven’t fulfilled their full potential (cue Jahlil Okafor). This could open up a sign and trade where Philly receives CJ for one year 20 mil and Indiana receives Okafor. Philly gets a shooter and maintains cap flexibility and Miles can be the backup 3 behind Cov

    • This is the looniest comment I have ever read. Philly has a lot of cap space and could just sign him outright. Also the whole $20m salary to back up a fringey player who probably isn’t going to even be the starter at that position.

        The 20 mil doesn’t matter as long as it’s for one year and Okafor needs to be traded and Indiana is a possible suitor. Philly already tried with Boston and Amir Johnson so why not try again. If it doesn’t work, do what you said and sign him outright

          Dude he’s never even made 5mil/per and you wanna give him 20!?!? I could see some raise, but let’s be serious.

          • Dude can score I think he will get 10+ but yeah no reason for Philly to give up Okafor
