“LeBron (James) has had an incredible career, and I know how many minutes he’s played. He’s played a lifetime of minutes,” (Jerry) Colangelo said in a phone interview. “He’s been involved with Team USA basketball since he was 19. This is totally up to him – he has to make the call whether he wants to go after three Gold medals.

“One thing I need to find out: is he desirous, is he committed,” Colangelo said. “I don’t know that right now, and I need to find out at some point. An indicator will come next week when we see who shows up.”

Colangelo said he expects James to come to Las Vegas for a meeting or two, but not to participate in any drills, because of his packed schedule.
