According to the Indy Star, former Cleveland Cavaliers guard and free agent C.J. Miles and the Indiana Pacers have agreed to terms on a four-year, $18 million deal. Along with Spencer Hawes and Luol Deng, Miles was a free agent that the Cavs were hoping they could lull back to Cleveland. The three-point sharp shooter and defensive specialist set a Cleveland record for most three-pointers in a game with 10 this past season. Miles recently met with the team and Pacers President of Basketball Operations Larry Bird on Tuesday.

Last season for the Cavaliers Miles averaged 9.9 points and 2.0 rebounds, while shooting 43.5 percent from the field, 39.3 percent from three and 85.3 percent from the free throw line. Miles has spent the last two seasons with the Cavaliers, experiencing much success as a bench player as well as receiving adequate time as a starter this past season.
Just recently, our very own Mike Schreiner broke down why the Cavaliers must re-sign Miles. Even though that wasn’t the case for Cleveland, you can still read Mike’s piece here.
