Big Three Hold First 'Summit Meeting' of Offseason

As was expected to happen eventually, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh met today to discuss their plans this offseason. The meeting was first reported by the Miami Herald’s Lesley Abravanel, who Tweeted that the three had lunch together Wednesday. ESPN is reporting that the three discussed their futures.

Much like they did before signing with theMiami Heat in 2010, LeBron James,Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh got together for a meeting to discuss their futures on Wednesday, sources told ESPN.com.

LeBron, Bosh and Wade asked to be left alone while they enjoyed some plates, and also discussed their evening plans.

These meetings are relatively common. As Brian Windhorst notes in his report, the three agreed in 2006 to sign matching deals that made them all free agents in 2010. That year, they all signed similar deals with early termination options for this summer.

LeBron opted out of his contract Tuesday morning, making him a free agent. Wade and Bosh have yet to make any decisions on what they will do public.

It’s important to note that even though LeBron opted out, players can still discuss free agency with each other before the official period begins on July 1. However, team representatives cannot talk with free agents before then, or else it is considered tampering.
