Raptors coach Dwane Casey said the starting small forward position is still up in the air.
The position battle is between C.J. Miles and Norman Powell with OG Anunoby (knee) limited early on. Powell has the higher upside, but Miles will provide some value as a 3-point specialist if he wins the starting role after hitting 2.2 triples per game in three straight seasons. Sep 25 - 11:09 AM

The Raptors made the signing of C.J. Miles official on Tuesday.

Miles was acquired from Indiana in the Corey Joseph sign-and-trade deal, and his contract with Toronto is reportedly for three years at $25 million with a player option on Year-3. Miles will likely be competing with Norman Powell for a starters designation over the course of training camp, so that's a battle we'll be watching closely. However, even as a starter, Miles wouldn't be much more than a deep league, 3-point specialist in fantasy hoops.

The Raptors are finalizing a sign-and-trade with Indiana to move Cory Joseph for CJ Miles according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Woj adds that the deal is agreed to in principle and should be completed soon -- Miles will sign a 3-year deal worth $25 million with a player option on the third year. The Raptors moved DeMarre Carroll to Brooklyn in a salary dump, so Miles would be a nice addition on the wings as a 3-point threat off the bench -- he hit 2.2 treys on a 41.3 percent clip last season. The arrival of Miles isn't ideal for Norman Powell or OG Anunoby, but Powell should still see a significant increase in minutes in 2017-18.

Minnesota is reportedly interested in pursuing a sign-and-trade deal for C.J. Miles.

The reported sign-and-trade deal would involve Indiana acquiring Cole Aldrich and a 2018 pick from OKC in exchange for Miles, so it'll be interesting to see what becomes of this report. This is the second report we've had regarding the Timberwolves pursuing a deal for Miles, so there does indeed appear to be interest there.
Jul 5 - 10:22 AM

The Wolves have inquired about free agent C.J. Miles according to Darren Wolfson of KSTP.com.

They have also inquired about Justin Holiday, but both of these guys are expected to be backup plans for the Wolves while the big names are still on the market. The Wolves need 3-point shooting and Miles hit 2.2 treys on a 41.3 percent clip last season, so he would be a nice fit for their second unit.
Jul 2 - 9:28 AM

The Pistons will reportedly have interest in C.J. Miles if he hits free agency this summer.

The 30-year-old swingman will decline the final year of his contract in hopes of a long-term deal, according to ESPN, and Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy has a long-established fondness for perimeter shooters. Detroit's salary-cap situation is in flux, but beat writer Vince Ellis notes that they could pursue Miles with an $8.4 million mid-level exception.
May 31 - 11:46 PM

C.J. Miles will decline his player option for the 2017-18 season in order to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

Miles isn't the most consistent guy, but he did manage to shoot a career-high 41.3 percent from 3-point range this past season to go with averages of 10.7 points and 2.2 triples per game, so he shouldn't have much trouble finding his next contract. If the Pacers aren't able to retain the 30-year-old sharpshooter for the 2017-18 season, that could result in some increased opportunity for Lance Stephenson.

C.J. Miles is unsure if he will opt out of his contract and become a free agent this summer.

Miles has a player option worth $4.8 million for the 2017-18 season. "I haven’t made a decision yet, but I’ll sit down with my agent in the next couple of days," Miles said after the Pacers were eliminated by the Cavs on Sunday. "If it does happen [opting out], it’s not solely because I’m trying to get out of here. It’s a business decision." With the salary cap rising this summer, Miles will be able to make more than $5 million on the open market. Thus, it's safe to assume he will opt out.

C.J. Miles scored six points on 2-of-5 shooting during Sunday's Game 4 loss to the Cavs, adding two 3-pointers, three rebounds and one block through 25 minutes as a starter.

Miles had an up-and-down year, but his 2.2 triples per game had him flirting with late-round value on the season. Still, he won’t be worth much more than a last-round flier in deep leagues for those seeking a 3-point specialist in next year’s drafts.
Apr 23 - 3:48 PM

C.J. Miles will start over Monta Ellis again in Game 4 vs. the Cavaliers on Sunday.

Miles is generally more aggressive in the second unit, but his splits as a starter and reserve during the regular season are very similar. Miles can get hot in a hurry which makes him a DFS tournament play, but he's also no stranger to duds. In a start in Game 3, Miles scored nine points with two rebounds and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes.
Apr 23 - 11:29 AM

C.J. Miles scored nine points in the starting lineup during a loss to the Cavs on Thursday, adding two rebounds and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes.

It made a lot of sense to start Miles, but he was not looking for his shot at all. Miles made just 3-of-6 from the field, which may have been due to the comments from Paul George saying he should've had the last shot in Game 1. Miles is probably going to make another start for Game 4, but his usage looks like it'll remain low.
Apr 20 - 10:13 PM

C.J. Miles is set to start for Game 3 against the Cavs on Thursday.

This will move Monta Ellis to the bench. The Cavs have been causing the Pacers to switch a lot, so getting Miles out there adds some size to help prevent LeBron James getting a small on him. Miles should be looking at minutes in the 20s, so he could be an interesting option. Of course, he's one of the most inconsistent players as a starter.
Apr 20 - 6:15 PM

C.J. Miles went off for a season-high 27 points on Sunday, making 8-of-13 shots with five 3-pointers, six rebounds, two assists, one steal and zero turnovers in 34 minutes.

It's the sixth time this season that Miles has scored 20+ points, but he has notched at least 15 in three straight. He was also 6-of-6 at the line tonight and is a combined 27-of-28 since March 1st, which is a bonus for roto owners. Miles runs as hot and cold as anyone, so deploy him at your own risk.
Apr 2 - 10:45 PM

C.J. Miles scored 15 points with three rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Raptors on Friday.

With Lance Stephenson now in the mix, it'll be interesting to see how coach Nate McMillan splits his wing minutes. Unless Miles is hot early, it's likely he drops below his season average of 23.4 minutes per game going forward. He's a drop candidate.
Mar 31 - 9:36 PM

C.J. Miles shifted to the bench on Sunday, where he notched 10 points, six rebounds and two 3-pointers in 23 minutes.

The Pacers haven't lost at home to the Sixers since 2013, a streak of seven games, and tonight's game was never really in doubt. They ran away to finish with a 107-94 advantage, so it's more than likely that Miles will stick in the second unit behind a starting backcourt of Jeff Teague and Monta Ellis. It's not the worst thing for his fantasy value since he was scuffling along as a low-usage starter.
