Thursday was the first day NBA free agents could sign contracts, but LeBron James was at his basketball camp in Las Vegas and had yet to announce a decision about where he will play next season.
James was joined at the LeBron James Skills Academy by his Heat teammate of four years, Dwyane Wade, who also is a free agent. The two were spotted chatting and watching a pickup game together, ESPN reported on its website.
There is no timetable for Jamesí decision, but with him reportedly planning to attend the World Cup final Sunday in Brazil, a decision before then seems likely.
James and his agent, Rich Paul, met with Heat officials for more than an hour Wednesday afternoon in Las Vegas, sources told ESPN.com.
James and Paul are done meeting with teams, according to sources close to the situation. James now will talk with his family and make his choice.
If James does choose to leave the Heat, free agent Chris Bosh will sign with the Houston Rockets, sources said.
James not rushing to make a choice could put a time squeeze on Bosh. Though he hopes to remain with the Heat along with James, sources said, Bosh has secured a backup offer for four years and $88 million from the Rockets.
Other players such as Pau Gasol, Lance Stephenson, Luol Deng and Paul Pierce aer also waiting around, but others signed Thursday.
