SALT LAKE CITY -- C.J. Miles will stay in Utah after the Jazz matched the deal offered by Oklahoma City to the restricted free agent.

On July 18, Oklahoma City offered a four-year deal worth about $15 million to Miles, who will be entering his fourth NBA season. Under the NBA's collective bargaining agreement, the Jazz had a week to match that offer and said Friday they would do so.

The 6-foot-6 guard was the 34th player chosen in the 2005 draft, selected by Utah out of Skyline High School in Dallas.

In three seasons, the 21-year-old Miles has averaged 4.0 points, 1.3 rebounds and 0.8 assists. Last season, he averaged a career-high 5.0 points and 11.5 minutes per game.

Miles said in a conference call that the Jazz "are not going to promise me I'm going to play just because I signed the contract."

"That's not been discussed," he said. "It's been discussed that if I come in and work and show that I should play, then I will play, and that's what I plan to do.


I like Miles, I dunno how much PT he'll get, but it's nice to know that the Jazz believe in him. :mellow:

Sometimes $ is worth more than PT to some players.
