Pacers News: Team meets with free agent CJ Miles, close to signing?

In today's Pacers news update, the Indiana Pacers met with former Cleveland Cavs wing CJ Miles on Tuesday - a meeting which included a dinner attended by team president Larry Bird.

According to Candace Buckner of, "Miles, who earned $2.225 million last season, could find himself in demand for team like the Pacers, who could use a shooting boost. Last season, Indiana ranked 22nd in the NBA in 3-pointers made per game while only three rotational players shot 36 percent or better from the arc."

In 51 games with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2013-14, Miles averaged 9.9 points per game and 39.3 percent from downtown. Despite missing the final 14 games of the 2013-14 season with a severely sprained left ankle, the 27-year-old Miles has been working out feverishly this offseason to get back into game shape.

Per Adrian Wojnarowski, the Pacers have their mid-level exception to utilize on Miles at their discretion:

All in all, Miles has a very good chance of finding himself in a Pacers uniform next season.
