"What I saw was Miles misfiring on 3-pointers around the perimeter and Iavaroni imploring Miles to display more energy while performing mid-range drills. "
Well what did anyone except? Miles has never been a good 3 point shooter or a good jumpshooter for that matter.

He will be a legitimate backup sf. So you wouldn't have Buckner or Ross playing at sf much if at all anymore. Although Ross would just be the back up sg like he's more suited for anyways.

That's exactly why I feel like he could be done. If he has lost a step or two he has nothing else to offer.

1)it fulfills a need. We need some scoring and athleticism off the bench. Imagine Rudy sitting down and Conley having a finished like Miles stepping in his spot. Nice!
2)it could hurt the blazers (nuff said)
3)another reason to get media attention. This is something that doesn't happen to Memphis very often. OJ and Rudy and now add a story like Miles and we get on the radar fast.
4)Miles is easily another Gerald Green on NBA 2k9. Which makes Memphis a beast in the game.

Wrong again (making quite the habit of that). Boston probably would have kept him after inviting him to training camp if they didn't already have a full complement of guaranteed contracts.

Not the case. He wasn't any better then their current group of players they had so they set him free. Why do you think it is that only we would take a chance with him? I am almost positive I heard he was being looked at by another team and was dumped by them also.
