The Deseret News posted an article online today about former Cougar big man Chris Miles. The 6-foot-11 center is coming off a successful season with the Hanau White Wings in Germany where he averaged 12.6 points and 7.7 rebounds. He helped Hanau to a 13-9 record and a spot in the postseason.
According to Dick Harmon's Deseret News article, Miles attended a major workout in Chicago in front of NBA scouts and was told that he stood out. With the Jazz, Knicks, Hornets and Lakers in attendance, here's hoping Miles gets a shot with an NBA team.
The main focus of Harmon's article was the charity work Miles is involved with. Miles is working with TSXL to benefit the Eaton Alliance, which assists people with autism. Miles and TSXL will host a gourmet dinner and auction at The Manor at the Shops at Riverwoods on June 25 at 5:30 p.m. BYU coach Dave Rose will be the guest speaker and vacations, sports equipment, hunting and fishing trips and more will be auctioned off.
