(The Sports Xchange) - Despite continued speculation about the future, there's still no word on where LeBron James will play next season.

James had meetings that lasted more than three hours on Tuesday in Las Vegas, the Associated Press reported. The free-agent forward did not tip his hand when asked where he plans to play next season, saying only that he had "no complaints" about his situation.

The Minnesota Timberwolves signed first-round draft pick Zach LaVine to a contract on Tuesday.

Terms of the deal were not immediately made available by the team. The 6-foot-5 guard from UCLA was the No. 13 overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft.

With money to spend to satisfy salary-cap spending requirements, the Philadelphia 76ers could be the soft landing the New York Knicks need to unload veteran forward A'mare Stoudemire.

The New York Post reported Tuesday that Knicks president Phil Jackson has talked with the 76ers about a possible deal. Stoudemire activated his 2014-15 season option and is scheduled to make $23.4 million next season.
