Calvin Andre "C. J." Miles, Jr. (born March 18, 1987 in Dallas, Texas) is an American professional basketball player for the Utah Jazz.


High school

Miles attended Skyline High School for Architecture in Dallas where he was named to the Parade Magazine All-America First Team. He averaged 23.2 points, 11.2 rebounds and 3.3 assists as a junior and 23.5 points, 10.0 rebounds and 4.8 assists as a senior.

Miles led Skyline to the Class 5A Region II quarterfinals as a senior and was named All-Dallas Area Player of the Year by The Dallas Morning News. He was also named a 2005 McDonald's High School All-American. He was listed as the 19th best senior prospect by and ranked the 10th best senior in the country by

Skyline retired his No. 34 jersey making him only the second player in school history to receive the honor, joining former NBA star Larry Johnson.

He capped off his high school career by scoring 13 points in the McDonald's High School All-America Game and 16 points in the Michael Jordan Classic.


Miles committed to the University of Texas at Austin, stating that if he was not selected in the first round of the NBA Draft he would play for the Longhorns. He was drafted by the Utah Jazz in the 2nd round, with the 34th pick of the 2005 NBA Draft but decided to forego college when the Jazz offered a two-year guaranteed contract equivalent to that of a late first round selection. At age 18, he became the youngest player in Jazz franchise history.[1]

During the 2005–06 season, the Jazz assigned Miles to the Albuquerque Thunderbirds of the NBA Development League (D-League) in order for him to attain more experience.[2]

After playing 21 games during the 2006–07 NBA season, he was again assigned by the Jazz to the D-League, this time to the Idaho Stampede.[3]

Miles is perhaps best known as the subject of one of the most memorable post-game interviews of the 2006–07 NBA season, where coach Jerry Sloan stated, "I don't care if he's 19 or 30. If he's going to be on the floor in the NBA, he's got to be able to step up and get after it. We can't put diapers on him one night, and a jockstrap the next night. It's just the way it is." Miles at the time was the youngest player on the Jazz roster.[4]However in the 2008–2009 season Miles became a starter.

Miles has seen limited playing time in his first 3 seasons with the Jazz, occasionally being sent down to the NBA Development League in his first two seasons. His impressive preseason showing gave him the starting job in the 2006–07 NBA season, which he quickly lost. After Gordan Giricek was removed from the Jazz's lineup partway through the 2007–08 NBA season, his playing time increased significantly and he showed significant signs of improvement, although since Kyle Korver has arrived his playing time has again decreased.

On July 18, 2008, C.J. Miles signed a 4-year, $15 million contract with the Oklahoma City Thunder.[5][6] Since he was a restricted free agent, the Jazz had seven days to decide to match the offer or not. They matched the deal on July 25, making Miles stay in Utah.[1] Terms of the deal were not announced.[1]
