LAS VEGAS (AP) — LeBron James held meetings for more than three hours in a Las Vegas hotel Tuesday, leaving without giving any indication of what team he'll play for next season.

The four-time MVP told The Associated Press he had "no complaints" when asked how free agency was going. He declined to say whom he had met with on Tuesday or whether he had made a decision of where he'll play next.

James is expected to meet with Miami Heat President Pat Riley before making a final decision on his NBA future, and a person close to the situation said that meeting had not happened as of Tuesday afternoon. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because no one has publicly announced the date of the meeting.

Some of James' representatives have met with several teams, including the Cleveland Cavaliers.

After filming a TV commercial in Miami on Monday, James flew to Las Vegas for his annual skills academy. Later this week, he's expected to travel to Brazil to the World Cup final.

He took time to Tuesday morning to work out with Dwayne Wade in Las Vegas before his meetings, another person close to the situation told the AP.

On the the fourth anniversary of his announcement to leave the Cavaliers, James has the NBA waiting and guessing about his next move as a free agent.

Unlike 2010, James has kept a much lower profile during his courtship. While he was on a family vacation, his agent, Rich Paul, met in Cleveland with the Cavs as well as the Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks, Los Angeles Lakers and Phoenix Suns, all of whom pitched plans as to why the 29-year-old superstar should sign with them.

James wanted to contain the madness that surrounded his first foray into free agency four years ago, but the growth of social media has turned the past week into an endless storm of rumors, speculation and baseless media reports.

While James may be nearing an announcement, that won't come until he's met with Riley.

On Monday, the Heat announced they intend to sign Danny Granger and Josh McRoberts, two free agents to bolster their rostersituation told The Associated Press that James and Dwyane Wade worked out together in Las Vegas on Tuesday morning. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no one has publicly released James' itinerary.
