Oklahoma City has signed Utah guard C.J. Miles to an offer sheet, according to a league source with knowledge of the team’s negotiations.
The terms of the deal remain unclear, but the offer is expected to start at more than the $1.2 million Miles was set to earn with Utah next season. Because Miles is a restricted free agent, the Jazz will have seven days to match the offer sheet for the 6-foot-6, 220-pounder.
Miles, 21, is entering his fourth season after declaring for the draft out of high school in 2005. The former 34th overall pick has career averages of 4.0 points, 1.3 rebounds and 0.8 assists in 120 games, 29 as a starter.
Known as a perimeter shooting threat, Miles is a career 32.6-percent shooter from behind the 3-point line and holds a career high of 29 points.
If the Jazz decline to match Oklahoma City’s offer for Miles, he would join Kevin Durant, Jeff Green and Russell Westbrook as the team’s building blocks for the future.
