HoopsHype CJ Miles rumors

May 10, 2012 Updates

Signing with the hometown Mavericks, where he could possibly be reunited with former Utah teammate Deron Williams, intrigues Miles. "If that was an issue that came up I definitely would look at it. Who wouldn't, especially with the way that team is built now," Miles said. "They're aging a little bit and I'm pretty sure they're going to be looking for some guys that do some of the things I do."

At the same time, though, Miles noted that he still believes there's room for him in Utah — where he can keep growing with the team. "I grew up here, basically," Miles said while confirming that the Jazz remain an option in his future plans — although he later took a shot at head coach Tyrone Corbin's communication skills at Tuesday's locker cleanout.

Miles said the team was put off by Al Jefferson's pre-Game 4 comments about no one beating the Spurs in the playoffs and San Antonio being better than Utah. Miles loves the Jazz, the team's fans and thinks Corbin will evolve. But he never knew what was expected of him this year. Miles said communication was much better with former coach Jerry Sloan, and Corbin has struggled relaying his message to team. Salt Lake Tribune

Chris Mannix: Nothing happening between the Nets and Jazz regarding CJ Miles, source with direct knowledge tells http://SI.com Twitter

C.J. Miles participated in the Jazz's shoot-around Wednesday morning at US Airways Center, 24 hours before the NBA trade deadline. Miles' name has surfaced in possible trades in the last few days, but his biggest concern at this point is playing well tonight against the Phoenix Suns. "All I can control is what I do on the basketball floor -- play hard," Miles said. "Like I've said all year, my job is to play basketball, whenever and wherever it is. And that's what I'm going to do." Salt Lake Tribune

Alex Kennedy: Sources say the Utah Jazz are shopping C.J. Miles. The New Jersey Nets and Minnesota Timberwolves are among the teams showing interest. Twitter

Sources tell HOOPSWORLD that the Utah Jazz and New Jersey Nets have discussed deal that would swap Miles for pieces like Anthony Morrow and Johan Petro. The Nets would like to trim off as much salary as possible for the offseason, when they hope to attain the services of center Dwight Howard. Miles has an expiring deal while both Morrow and Petro have another at a combined $7.5 million. HoopsWorld

Brian T. Smith: C.J. Miles was definitely available about two weeks ago. General thought now is he's easier to move in a package deal. Twitter

The Jazz are open to making a move before the March 15 trade deadline to improve the team, The Salt Lake Tribune has learned, but a deal isn't imminent. Utah also doesn't feel pressure to move starting big men Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap to make room for young power forward Derrick Favors and center Enes Kanter in the near future. The Jazz are still evaluating a team that has 10 contests remaining before the trade deadline, including tough home matchups against Miami and Houston, and a five-game road trip featuring contests at Dallas, Philadelphia and Chicago. Utah has lost eight of 10 and is just 6-13 since starting 9-4. However, the Jazz are only five games behind the fourth-place Mavericks in a stacked Western Conference, and Utah has not become a seller yet. Salt Lake Tribune

The Jazz remain open to moving starting point guard Devin Harris, league sources said, and reserve small forward C.J. Miles could be made available in the right situation. But Utah continues to take a long-term approach in building its team after the Deron Williams trade last February, and the Jazz won't make a move simply to pull the trigger. Salt Lake Tribune

Excerpts from an interview Wednesday with Jazz forward C.J. Miles. Miles on his interest in re-signing with Utah: If they want me back, it's obviously great and I've been here — it'll be seven years. I grew up here, basically. I learned a lot here. At the same time, if it plays out like that's not the way they want to go and something else happens – it's up in the air. This is the first year I'll be unrestricted, so maybe it'll be a little different. It's just that's the way it is. No disrespect to anybody. It's just the way it plays out. If there's a situation; if it seems like this is the place to be at that time, then I'm definitely going to be here and want to be here. I don't have any problems. I feel like I've had great times here. And if the situation is up in the air and it plays out the other way, and they decide to go in a different direction and my direction is a little different, then [it'll] work out. Like you said, it's just pretty much up in the air. It's the first year there's any real — it could go any way. Salt Lake Tribune
