A modified version of the ballyhooed free-agent summit that was initially suggested and then downplayed by Dwyane Wade has indeed taken place, ESPN.com has learned.
There will be no free agency summit. So says NBA commissioner David Stern, saying he's been assured at the highest levels that there will be no sitdown among LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and the other superstars who could hit the market on July 1.
The agent for Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh says the characterization of discussions among the NBA's top free agents as a "summit" is not accurate, according to CNBC.com.
