Miami forward LeBron James is slated to meet with Heat President Pat Riley sometime early this week to see what kind of roster is shaping up for the Heat.

James, whose agent Rich Paul has already met with Cavs brass, will be sold on the prospect of joining a young team, with flexibility to add players in the coming years. The Cavs will work on creating cap space and trying to potentially add another free agent to play alongside James.

The Cavs can point out they just signed Kyrie Irving to a 5-year extension, and have future star in Andrew Wiggins to build on.

No doubt, the pitch on coming home will be used; though James has never lost his love for Akron and Northeast Ohio as he still maintains a home in Bath, and takes part in many charitable endeavors in the area.

James has been silent during the process thus far, and has not weighed in on what kind of players the Heat should add. They did acquire Josh McRoberts and Danny Granger on Monday, hardly franchise changers. Also to become known, which team Chris Bosh might end up with if he does not returnĀ  to Miami.

Four years ago, many figured James would re-sign with the Cavs and he surprised many by taking his talents to South Beach. This year, with much speculation leaning toward a return home to Northeast Ohio, there remains the possibility of a curveball.
