Joe Kotoch: Riley wants Wade in Vegas & in the meeting w/ LeBron but potential to backfire too. He knows Wade can't stay healthy & will still carry him. For all those dismissing possibility of LeBron leaving remember he said he didn't need to meet w/ Heat before making a decision. Twitter @Probballdraft

If Miami was going this over-the-cap route all along, it could have asked LeBron, Wade, and Bosh to simply opt into their contracts, saving us the drama of tracking Dan Gilbert’s private plane and Savannah Brinson’s Instagram account. But it asked for the opt-outs anyway, and it did so to save money. Here’s why: The new CBA includes an “apron” that is slotted $4 million above the tax line, which is projected at about $77 million for next season. Grantland

Seven days into free agency, Miami Heat President Pat Riley made his first roster moves to show LeBron James why he should stick around. This much is clear: Riley is confident James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade will return, according to people who have had phone conversations with Riley in the last week. The people spoke to USA TODAY Sports under the condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the conversations. USA Today Sports

In the big picture, the Granger and McRoberts agreements give Riley room to present James with a couple of different spending options, including the ability to give Bosh a big contract, too. But the Houston Rockets would love nothing more than to break up the Big Three, and always-aggressive general manager Daryl Morey went to work by offering Bosh a maximum-level contract, a person familiar with the negotiations told USA TODAY Sports. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the private nature of the talks. USA Today Sports

The agent for Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh said his clients continue to sort through their options and that "nothing's changed" in their approach since the July 1 start of free agency. Chicago-based agent Henry Thomas insisted to ESPN.com on Sunday that Wade and Bosh are dealing with their free agency on individual terms, but that both want to make decisions that give them the best chance to compete for championships the next four seasons the way they have the last four years. "They appreciate what they've done in Miami those four years together, and they want to make sure they have a chance to have that same success the next four (years)," said Thomas, who attended Sunday's games at the Orlando Pro Summer League. "With Dwyane, he's been there his entire career, so he's in a unique situation. Chris has made it known how he's felt about being in Miami these four years." ESPN.com

Thomas insisted that Bosh and Wade are operating under separate circumstances, but expects them to reach decisions on new deals "within the next couple of days." ESPN.com
