Jazz reportedly shopping C.J. Miles; Nets, Timberwolves show interest

Jazz small forward C.J. Miles is reportedly drawing almost as much trade interest as teammate Josh Howard.

A few hours after HoopsWorld's Alex Kennedy mentioned Miles could be involved in a three-team deal, the lifetime Jazzman was linked to New Jersey and Minnesota.

Kennedy reported late Tuesday the Jazz are shopping Miles, with the Nets — featuring Miles' longtime friend, Deron Williams — and the Timberwolves among teams showing interest.

The Salt Lake Tribune reported two weeks ago the Jazz were open to moving Miles. A source close to Miles told The Tribune on Tuesday they were unaware of an imminent trade, but acknowledged he's still viewed by the organization as a moveable asset.

Several teams have shown interest during the last month in acquiring Miles, The Tribune has learned. He's a slasher who can fire away from 3-point land, and has seven seasons of NBA experience despite only being 24. Miles will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, though, and there's no guarantee a team that gives up assets to acquire him for the end of the 2011-12 campaign has a real chance of re-signing him this summer. As a result, Miles is more likely to be moved in a package deal.

Miles recently told The Tribune he's open to remaining with Utah after this year. But his minutes and productivity continue to fluctuate, and it's become increasingly likely this will be his final season with the Jazz.
