Report: Pistons interested in free agent Miles

C.J. Miles should add plenty to the Raptors' perimeter game.

The Detroit Pistons have an interest in adding free agent swingman C.J. Miles this summer, according to a report from the Detroit Free-Press.

Miles reportedly opted out of his contract with the Indiana Pacers earlier in the week.

Per the Free-Press:

A person with firsthand knowledge of the Pistons’ off-season plans told the Free Press this morning Miles “would be on our list.”

The person cautioned that a lot would depend on what happens with restricted free agents Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Reggie Bullock.

Miles, 30, is a 6-foot-6 swingman. He averaged 10.7 points and shot 41 percent on 3-pointers, primarily coming off the Pacers’ bench.

As Hoops Rumors explains:

KCP and Bullock are both restricted free agents, so it’s likely coach/executive Stan Van Gundy opts to retain at least one of the two. If the team goes over the salary cap, which is projected to come in at $101MM, it will have the $8.4MM mid-level exception to work with and a new deal for Miles could fit into that slot. The swingman would have made roughly $4.77MM had he decided to stay on his deal with Indiana.
