AP Source: Riley, LeBron meeting ends in Vegas

LAS VEGAS — A person familiar with the situation says Pat Riley has gotten his chance at convincing LeBron James to stay in Miami.

The person told The Associated Press that the Miami Heat president met with the four-time NBA MVP on Wednesday afternoon in Las Vegas, more than two weeks after James opted out of his contract and elected to become a free agent.

James, his agent Rich Paul, Riley and Heat executive Andy Elisburg were at the meeting, according to the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because neither side publicly announced who would be attending.

The person also said that it was unclear whether James informed Riley where he would play next season.

Free agents may begin signing contracts on Thursday.
