NBA Free Agency 2014: C.J. Miles enjoyed his dinner with Larry Bird

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers' front office turned their attention to the reserve unit on Tuesday when they met with free agent swingman C.J. Miles.

While Lance Stephenson started mulling his offer from the Pacers, Larry Bird moved on to looking for some offense off the bench as the team's front office met with free agent swingman, C.J. Miles on Tuesday evening.

The group discussed their options together over dinner in Indianapolis which appear to involve some portion of the Pacers' $5.3 million mid-level exception. Miles made $2.2 million in Cleveland last season where he played in 51 games and shot a career-best 39.3% from behind the arc. Bumping that number up a bit could still preserve some MLE money to fill out the roster.

Miles is heading into his tenth NBA season but is just 27 after surviving as a second-round draft pick after an early jump to the NBA out of high school. Since he didn't endure a lot of early mileage on his body, Miles should be heading into his prime years when his NBA body and mind understand what needs to be done to succeed and how to do it.

We have no idea if Miles liked what he heard from the Pacers front office but he certainly enjoyed the experience of breaking bread with Larry Bird.
