The Oklahoma City Thunder are taking a look the 30-year old 6-foot-6 inch small forward C.J. Miles.
According to ESPN writer, Royce Young, Oklahoma City still have C.J. Miles on its radar as free agency is only hours away.
Most certainly. https://t.co/Kk79i3e1AQ

Miles has opted out of contract with the Indiana Pacers to test free agency this offseason. The Washington Post has Miles as the 23 best free agent this offseason.
This past season Miles scored 10.7 points and three rebounds a game in 23.4 minutes.
The Thunder are probably most interested in his three-point shooting as he shot a career high 41.3 percent from behind the three-point-line with the Pacers last season, a career high.
Miles is also solid on defense as averaged 0.6 steals last season and he can hold his own.
Miles could fit well as a role player to help the bench with scoring and the team in shooting from behind the arc as OKC lead the league last year in missed wide open three-pointers.
This move seems realistic for the Thunder as it shouldn’t cost them too much money as they are basically capped out at the moment and the salary cap increase is two million less than what it was expected to be.
Free agency starts at 11:01 p.m. tonight and we could see some mayhem only minutes after the start of it.We invite you to follow Thunder Digest on Twitter and like Thunder Digest on Facebook.
