Heat's Big 3 meet to discuss future

Much like they did before signing with the Miami 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.

James opted out of the final two years and $42 million of his contract with the Heat on Tuesday. Wade and Bosh have until midnight on Monday to decide if they will follow suit.

The meeting included a meal at a South Beach eatery, the Miami Herald reported.

In 2006, James, Wade and Bosh consulted each other before signing matching three-year contract extensions that made them all free agents in 2010. That year, they all signed deals that gave them matching opt-out clauses for this week.

James also is expected to stay in touch with friend Carmelo Anthony, who opted out of his contract with the New York Knicks on Monday to explore free agency.
