LeBron James will meet with Miami Heat President Pat Riley in Las Vegas on Wednesday, a person with knowledge of the situation told USA TODAY Sports.
The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the private nature of the talks.
The meeting with Riley is expected to be significant, as he has been attempting to rebuild the roster that fell short in the Finals last month and does not include James, Dwyane Wade or Chris Bosh at the moment. The three free agents may or may not rejoin the Heat, but James' view is clearly the most vital component. His agent, Rich Paul, has had formal discussions with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks, Phoenix Suns, and Los Angeles Lakers.
James, who is in Las Vegas this week for a Nike-sponsored basketball camp, has yet to meet with any team officials in person. ESPN first reported the specific date of James' meeting with Riley.
