C.J. Miles Excited For Opportunity With Cavaliers

After a lengthy stint with the Utah Jazz, Cleveland Cavaliers small forward C.J. Miles is excited about the possibilities with his new team, as Jason Lloyd of the Beacon Journal writes. Miles signed a two-year, $4 million contract with the Cavaliers during the offseason, giving Cleveland a veteran wing player to complement the team's young cornerstones.

At a recent charity event, Cavaliers coach Byron Scott spoke about Miles' possibly untapped potential:

I just thought he has so much left in him basketball-wise and it’s really untapped. There are so many things he can do on a basketball court. I thought he’d be a great fit for us.

The small forward was also at the event, and he seems to be similarly excited about his possible role in Cleveland:

My thing coming into the summer wasn’t about money, it was about the best basketball situation. I think a lot of people feel like I am who I’m going to be, which I don’t believe is true and obviously the organization feels the same way

Miles, 25, played with the Jazz for seven seasons after being drafted out of high school in 2005. His numbers peaked in 2010-2011 at 12.8 points per game and 3.3 rebounds per game, but they fell off during the lockout-shortened season, finishing at 9.1 points per game and 2.1 rebounds per game.
