Four years after their messy breakup, the Cavaliers and James are at least talking about a reunion. Cavs officials met with James' agent, Rich Paul, this week about the free-agent superstar's possible return.

Two people familiar with the situation told The Associated Press that LeBron James will meet with Miami Heat President Pat Riley this week before making a decision about where to play next season.

The time and location were still being scheduled, said the people who spoke on condition of anonymity because neither the Heat nor James announced their plans publicly.

James opted out of his contract with the Heat last month. His agent met with several teams last week, including Cleveland, where he spent his first seven NBA seasons.
