LAS VEGAS (AP) — When it comes to Dwyane Wade, it's clear that the Miami Heat want him back and they're willing to be patient while he figures out his plan.What's unclear is this: How much they'll have to pay.Heat President Pat Riley said Friday that he will have talks with managing general partner Micky Arison in the coming days about Wade's future. Realistically, there's only two contract options for Miami to present Wade — the $5.3 million exception, or the $2.4 million veteran minimum. The potential luxury tax implications Miami could face next year would rise in either case, and that's what the Heat are trying to avoid."That's the abyss that we all deal with in the NBA," Riley said.Riley said Miami has had talks with Wade and his agent Leon Rose over the summer, though no real detail about those conversations has been revealed by either side.Wade said at the end of last season that he wasn't certain about playing for a 16th NBA season in 2018-19, and hasn't offered anything in...

LOS ANGELES (AP) — LeBron James tells a gathering of athletes and entertainers that he regrets naming his oldest son after him in a new HBO show.Set in a barbershop, "The Shop" debuts Aug. 28 featuring James leading conversation and debate among his guests.The first episode features rapper Snoop Dogg, New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors, Candace Parker of the Los Angeles Sparks, New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara, comedian Jon Stewart and Maverick Carter, James' producing partner.In the debut, Stewart asks James about the challenge of having his sons play the same sport he does, including LeBron James Jr."I still regret giving my 14-year-old my name because of that," James said. "When I was younger I didn't have a dad, so my whole thing was like whenever I have a kid not only is it going to be a junior, I'm going to do everything that this man didn't do. They're going to experience things that I didn't experience. The only thing I can do is give them the blueprint and it's up to them to take their own course."The show will visit barbershops around the country and air periodically throughout the year.
