Elisburg to join LeBron and Riley in Vegas meeting

Alexander Tamargo

According to reports, Heat's assistant GM and cap expert Andy Elisburg will participate in today's meeting between Pat Riley, LeBron James, and Rich Paul.

ESPN’s Chris Broussard reported that LeBron James and his agent Rich Paul are scheduled to meet today with Miami Heat president Pat Riley at 3pm local time in Las Vegas.

However, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports!, assistant GM (and salary cap expert) Andy Elisburg will also be in attendance.

This afternoon’s meeting will be James’ first face-to-face meeting with any team.

His agent Rich Paul met with suitors last week that included the Phoenix Suns, Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks, and Cleveland Cavaliers.

Since James’ choices appear to have been narrowed down between Miami and Cleveland, the rumor mill has been running amuck for the past few days and there has been much speculation that James is leaning towards returning to his former team, the Cleveland Cavaliers who now have the necessary cap room to offer him a max contract and includes a young core that includes Kyrie Irving and Andrew Wiggins.

With limited financial flexibility, Elisburg’s participation in today’s meeting will allow Riley to layout the team’s financial plan on how the team can upgrade its roster and remain competitive.

Perhaps it will be enough to get James to commit to returning to Miami, perhaps he chooses to go elsewhere…. or perhaps the entire NBA and its fans will continue to be on LeBron watch a bit longer.

Only LeBron knows what he’s thinking…
