    Miles, who averaged 10.2 points and 3.7 assists for Pau, France, in the Euroleague last season, has signed a one-year deal with Cajasol Sevilla in Spain?s top professional league.

    Terms were not announced, but contracts in that league can land a player between $300,000-$800,000 per year in U.S. dollars.

    ?Aaron has a very high value. We had offers from teams all over Europe, and a number of NBA teams showed interest,? Miles? agent, Chris Emens of Octagon, said.

    ?For him to go to the NBA and turn down this kind of money, we need a full guarantee. Teams that like him say, ?We?d like to give a full guarantee, but we like to see how things work out (with some other players).?

    ?What happens if he waits and a situation makes it impossible to sign him? Then he?s left without (Spain). If somebody gave him a full guaranteed deal (in NBA), he?d have taken it. This was the right move. It gives him the financial security to take bigger risks professionally.?</div>


    The Wizards were very interested in Aaron to give him a training camp invite, but I guess he didn't think he would make the team. [​IMG] . Instead, the Wizards will look towards Brian Chase and see if he's able to play with this team.
