The NBA's most coveted free agent, LeBron James, is expected to meet with Miami Heat president Pat Riley on Wednesday before making a decision on where he will play next season.

According to Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowskimany of the league's general managers believe that James will propose a one to two-year deal to stay with Miami. James reportedly wants to play for maximum money and there are only a handful of teams that could meet his monetary needs. 

The Cleveland Cavaliers, where James played his first seven NBA seasons, are one of those teams.​

On Wednesday, the team agreed in principle on a three-team trade with the Boston Celtics and the Brooklyn Nets, sending guard Jarrett Jack and forward Sergey Karasev to Brooklyn and center Tyler Zeller, guard Marcus Thornton and a 2016 first-round pick to Boston.
