C.J. Miles picks Cavs over Lakers

Scratch C.J. Miles from the Lakers’ wish list. He will sign a two-season contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to a report Friday. The Lakers wanted him as a backup on the wing, either as a small forward or a shooting guard. They also are said to be interested in signing either Leandro Barbosa or Jodie Meeks to fill a backup guard spot. Barbosa played with Steve Nash for a time when they were both with the Phoenix Suns, and still has blazing speed. Meeks has a nice offensive game, but can he play defense?
