Report: Heat and Cavaliers expect decision before LeBron James leaves for Sunday’s World Cup final
LeBron James, after meeting with Pat Riley in Las Vegas, is reportedly headed back to Miami.
The city, not the Heat – at least not necessarily.
Chris Broussard of ESPN and Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports have the details:
LeBron is currently on a flight back to Miami. Then he's off to Brazil.— Chris Broussard (@Chris_Broussard) July 11, 2014
Dwyane Wade expected to be on a flight back to Miami with LeBron James tonight, league sources told Yahoo. They had been together in Vegas.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) July 11, 2014
I'm told James's plan - to fly from Vegas to Miami to Brazil - has been planned for more than a month, and that nothing should b read n2 it— Chris Broussard (@Chris_Broussard) July 11, 2014
James has plans to fly to World Cup over the weekend. Heat and Cavs expect his decision before he leaves for Brazil, sources tell Yahoo.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) July 11, 2014
Cavs talked w/ agents Thursday on players designed to surround LeBron James. Had hopes he'd commit to Cleveland before day's end. Nothing.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) July 11, 2014
Is Dwyane Wade making a final pitch to LeBron? Are they sharing a last hurrah together?
More importantly: What will LeBron do?
If both the Cavaliers and Heat expect an answer before he leaves the country, that’s telling. I’d guess they won’t be let down on that.
However, LeBron is under no obligation to decide before heading to the World Cup. He can deliberate as long as he wants.
No matter what the teams expect, the ball is in LeBron’s court – just as it’s always been.
