    Not a bad replacement. Had a bit of a down year last year, but has shown flashes. Thoughts?

    re: C.J. Miles reportedly will sign with Cavs (2 years)

    To be honest, I'd rather have Miles. He's been a pretty good player in Utah and has had to deal with a sort of clogging of wings over there. OKC signed him to an offer sheet in 08 so all you Presti lovers should like that. I'm also curious as to what Alonzo Gee is looking for?? Landry Fields money is pretty steep. With the move the Wolves made today, it wouldn't surprise me to see Kahn make a move for him...Lastly, we have matching rights, so unless Gee goes overseas he is basically at the mercy of our FO.

    I like that we are bringing him in but I hope we would bring back Gee too.

    By tomorrow we should have a Lloyd report that any rumor of a meeting between the Cavs and Miles has no truth in it.

    He's 25. Had 9.1 PPG on 38 percent shooting last year. For 2010-11 he had 12.8 PPG on 41% shooting.

    Would be a solid addition to our young core of players (25 yrs) we are keeping for the long haul.

    He's a bench player, shot less than 40% from field last year and 32% from 3pt. Not a starter, might put pressure on Gee though, who all of a sudden is starting to annoy me

    I had thought Miles was a player the Cavs should have been targeting anyway. I don't see why they can't both sign Miles and re-sign Gee. There are still holes on the wing as far as depth. Don't think you can 100% count on Azubuike making it back all the way either.

    Precisely. An inefficient offensive player who doesn't rebound or play defense. Let's hope this is just to prod Gee along to signing. There are no more Landry Fields type offers out there.

    He's streaky on offense, but there is certainly some talent there. He tries on defense and has solid length. I was talking him up as a sign-and-trade possibility last year at this time, before the unfortunate Casspi thing happened.

    I personally would rather have Miles than Gee.

    In other words he's not very good.

    Better than Casspi.

    re: C.J. Miles reportedly will sign with Cavs (2 years)

    I dont think it matters who plays SF this year. I wouldn't mind seeing Mike Sanders back. IMO I think SF is the Cavs next target in the draft. As far as I am concerned the Cavs can tank or under perform this year to get a higher pick next year. One more high pick is needed IMO. I think patience is the operative word. I would rather have Gee back as I think he has some upside and he is a solid pro now, but I don't see Gee or Miles as the long term solution, though Gee has the potential to be a solid pro.

    re: C.J. Miles reportedly will sign with Cavs (2 years)

    There is a reason we are meeting with him and that it was known in public from day one.... we are trying to gain some leverage with Gee... We want him back, but his price is too high for the cavs. They are trying to knock down that price by talking to other free agents.. if they don't lower it, then we might go a different route... but this is all a chess match right now. Cavs made a move, now its Alonzo's agents turn...

    I thought Miles was a good defender...

    Nice depth.

    re: C.J. Miles reportedly will sign with Cavs (2 years)

    Hope we don't sign him. Guy is a marginal bench player. Very inefficient offensive player. Regressed last season. Would much rather bring Gee back. Better #'s plus he improved 10000x as a player last season compared to Miles getting worse.

    Don't like it. We should be giving Brandon Rush an offer sheet IMO. Not sure if Warriors would match (Barnes and Thompson on the wings along with Dorell Wright + anyone else I can't think of off the top of my head).

    re: C.J. Miles reportedly will sign with Cavs (2 years)

    Seven years in the league and regressed the last 3 seasons, especially in shooting percentages:
    2009-2010 - .429 fg% and .341 3p%
    2010-2011 - .407 fg% and .322 3p%
    2011-2012 - .381 fg% and .307 3p%.

    Just for reference, Casspi, who is younger and has been only 3 years in the league, had all better percentages in both categories in these 3 seasons and is a much better rebounder.

    This isn't even a lateral move; this is a step back.

    I hope Gee doesn't overvalue himself too much and just signs a Cavs deal. The way things look at the moment, he will be the starter here and improve his value, especially with Kyrie at his side.

    re: C.J. Miles reportedly will sign with Cavs (2 years)

    I see this as a way of getting gee to pull his finger out and sign so they can start training with him. Miles is not that bad a player and better than some of our options off the bench. At cleveland he would be able to carve out a niche so i can see him being receptive to a small deal
