Miles, Others to Compete for Starting Job
Cavaliers general manager Chris Grant had almost convinced himself that free agent C.J. Miles would be signing elsewhere.
After all, he was being pursued by the Los Angeles Lakers, the Houston Rockets and a few other teams.
“I didn’t think he was a candidate for us,” Grant said Thursday at the Cavaliers luncheon at Executive Caterers at Landerhaven in Lyndhurst. “I thought he would go to a different place. He kept coming back to us. He said, ‘I want to be here.’ It’s a place he can jumpstart his career.”
Cavs coach Byron Scott said Miles will compete for a starting job.
“If you look at our team, Kyrie (Irving) and Andy (Varejao) are the only starters,” he said. “Tristan (Thompson), C.J. and Dion (Waiters) will have to earn it.”
