Free agent forward LeBron James will meet with Miami Heat president Pat Riley in Las Vegas on Wednesday, according to multiple reports.
Speculation has swirled about whether James would leave Miami after opting out of his contract last month. James' agent, Rich Paul, has reportedly indicated to the Cavaliers, where James spent the first seven seasons of his career, that the team is in a 'strong position' to land the four-time MVP.
The Heat made their first splashes in free agency on Tuesday, securing verbal agreements with free agent forwards Danny Granger and Josh McRoberts. The additions come less than a week after an associate of James told the Miami Herald that James is seeking upgrades to the team's roster.
