Hey The Pacers have coveted Cory Joseph for weeks, and now they've got him:
Toronto is finalizing a sign-and-trade with Indiana to move Cory Joseph for CJ Miles, league sources tell ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) July 9, 2017
Miles was a valuable piece, but once he opted out, it was obvious that Indiana wasn't going to being him back.
Joseph, meanwhile, could push Darren Collison for the starting point guard spot and will likely relegate Stephenson to the bench.
Joseph is due $15.5 million over the next two seasons.
UPDATE: Miles gave a goodbye to Indy on Twitter...
Indianapolis I just want to thank you for the love and support shown to me the past 3 years.. I am truly appreciative of every single cheer.— C.J. Miles (@masfresco) July 9, 2017
