Free agent swingman CJ Miles is reportedly set to suit up for the Wine and Gold for the 2012-13 season.
Though the Los Angeles Lakers were said to be leading the pack with regard to obtaining Miles’ services, The Salt Lake Tribune reports that Miles has in fact agreed to terms with the Cavaliers. The deal, which currently has no compensation tied to it, is said to be for two years.
Miles, 25, drew interest from several teams during free agency, including the Lakers, the Dallas Mavericks, Milwaukee Bucks and Houston Rockets. His growing bond with Cavaliers coach Byron Scott and the opportunity Cleveland presented him reportedly played very large roles in his decision to sign.
Miles, a 6-foot-6-inch wing who averaged 9.1 points off the Jazz’s bench in 2011-12, made a two-day visit to Cleveland back in June. Per the Tribune’s Brian T. Smith, despite touring larger and more-successful markets, Cleveland was the team that Miles “always wanted to sign with.”
