  • CLEVELAND — Four years after their messy breakup, the Cavaliers and LeBron James are at least talking about a reunion.
    Cavs officials met with James' agent, Rich Paul, this week about the free-agent superstar's possible return. The sides visited as James continued his family vacation, a person with knowledge of the details told The Associated Press on Thursday night.
    The person spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the talks.
    It was not immediately clear if owner Dan Gilbert was at the meeting.
    James recently opted out of the final two years of his contract in Miami. The two-time NBA champion has gone to four straight finals with the Heat. However, after the team was throttled by San Antonio in this year's finals, James said he would weigh his options this summer.
    One of them could be re-signing with the Cavs, the team he spent seven seasons with before leaving in 2010 to join forces with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in South Florida.
    James' decision to leave Cleveland prompted Gilbert to condemn him in a scathing letter to Cavs fans. The owner also told The AP he felt James had quit during games in the playoffs.
