Miles Will Have Chance To Compete For Starting Job With Cavaliers
C.J. Miles will have an opportunity to compete for a starting position with the Cavaliers.
“If you look at our team, Kyrie (Irving) and Andy (Varejao) are the only starters,” Byron Scott said. “Tristan (Thompson), C.J. and Dion (Waiters) will have to earn it.”
Scott was in favor of adding Miles.
“He’s a guy I really like,” he said. “I like the way he plays. I always thought he was a guy who could do more. I envisioned him playing multiple positions, the ‘2’ and the ‘3.’ I’m very excited about that pickup.”
The Cavaliers anticipated that Waiters would struggle during summer league play last month.
“We knew Dion was not going to be great in summer league,” general manager Chris Grant said. “A team had shut him down before the draft and told him to go back to Philadelphia. He was rusty. He hurt his knee a little bit. He did some (nice) things at summer league.”
