SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -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.''
