The Cleveland Cavaliers continue their offseason work trying to fill out their roster and according to Sam Amico, that means turning their attention to free agent small forward C.J. Miles.
Cavs meeting with free agent SF C.J. Miles (Jazz) Weds & Thurs, source says. Not close to deal with Alonzo Gee, may consider other options.— Sam Amico (@SamAmicoFSO) July 25, 2012
The Cavs expected to bring back restricted free agent Alonzo Gee but small forward has not found a suitable offer elsewhere for Cleveland to match and apparently the two sides aren't close on their own deal. Miles is a similar type of player that can add depth on the wing which he did for the past seven seasons with the Utah Jazz. Miles started 14 games for the Jazz last season and averaged nine points and two assists.
If nothing else, this meeting between the Cavs and Miles will apply a little pressure on Gee if the team remains interested in bringing him back.
