C.J. Miles or Boris Diaw To Nets?

If it looks like Dwight Howard will remain in Orlando past Thursday's trade deadline, look for the Nets to start cutting salary, by sending players with non-expiring deals elsewhere and if needed with a pick or two and cash.

It's already been widely reported that the Nets are in talks for the Bobcats' Boris Diaw and Thursday morning, a new name was added in the mix: C.J. Miles of the Jazz, who's five years younger than Diaw.

On the Diaw front, Fred Kerber confirms a Charlotte Observer story that the Nets "would surrender Houston’s lottery-protected first-rounder plus Jordan Farmar and Johan Petro. Charlotte wanted Anthony Morrow and was rebuffed. But that is just one of many possibilities."

One of the many possibilities is a trade for Miles who has several things going for him. He's a small forward with an expiring contract who's a good friend of Deron Williams. HoopsWorld and Stefan Bondy report the Nets and Jazz are talking. HoopsWorld's Eric Pincus writes the teams "have discussed a deal that would swap Miles for pieces like Anthony Morrow and Johan Petro." Bondy tweets the deal's centered around Miles, Petro and the Houston pick.
