Report: LeBron James leaves meeting with Pat Riley without committing to Heat

Jul 9, 2014, 7:50 PM EDT

LeBron James met with Pat Riley in Las Vegas today, and if you were expecting that to resolve anything, you’re going to be disappointed.

Realistically, the only team LeBron was likely to commit to today was the Heat. He knows them inside and out, and Riley had a chance to sell him on their big additions, Josh McRoberts and Danny Granger.

LeBron hasn’t even met with other teams, leaving his agent to lay the groundwork. I find it difficult to believe he’s ready to choose one of them.

Chris Broussard of ESPN:

Maybe LeBron simply signs with the Cavaliers soon. Or he could still re-sign with the Heat. Being non-committal today doesn’t take that out of play.

I’d guess LeBron starts taking meetings himself. If he’s not sold on Miami, it’s time to get a first-hand look at what else is out there. That would likely be a multi-day process.

Today offered a chance at resolution, but only with LeBron returning to the Heat. Now, a lot more is on the table.
