CLEVELAND (AP) — A person familiar with the discussion says the Cavaliers met with the agent for LeBron James about the superstar’s possible return to the team he left four years ago.
Cavs officials and Rich Paul visited this week as James continued his family vacation, said the person who spoke Thursday night to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the talks. It was not immediately clear if owner Dan Gilbert was at the meeting.
James recently opted out of the final two years of his contract in Miami. The two-time NBA champion has gone to four straight finals with the Heat. However, after the team was throttled by San Antonio in this year’s finals, James said he would weigh his options this summer.
ESPN has reported that Paul met with several teams.
