C.J. Miles on helping Dion Waiters along while competing for the starting job

C.J. Miles was acquired this offseason for two reasons: to offer much needed depth at the shooting guard position while also providing a veteran presence for a young Cavaliers team.

Currently, Miles is competing with Dion Waiters for the starting job at that position. At the same time, he’s also trying to help the fourth overall pick transition into life in the NBA.

I asked Miles about the approach he’s taking to accomplish both goals.

I was also on-hand as Byron Scott discussed Dion’s progress at practice over this past week.

Cavaliers final preseason matchup is tonight at 7pm against the Indiana Pacers. Opening night is rapidly approaching.
