Bronny James will be eligible to enter the NBA Draft in 2024 but until then, he might continue his development in the NCAA. Bronny, the son of LeBron James, has been projected as a second-round pick at best in the 2024 NBA Draft.
Per Paul Biancardi of ESPN, It is likely that James will follow the collegiate path with several NCAA Division I colleges showing interest in recruiting him. He’s being recruited by several programs, including Ohio State, Michigan, UCLA, USC and many others.
“Although it’s still relatively early in the recruiting process, there is a strong feeling he will take the college route as opposed to the G League Ignite or other developmental leagues.”
Bronny will play his final season at Sierra Canyon after starting his career there alongside other high-profile prospects like Brandon Boston Jr., Ziaire Williams and Amari Bailey. LeBron James admitted last season that he wants to play with Bronny before retiring.
“My last year will be played with my son. Wherever Bronny is at, that’s where I’ll be. I would do whatever it takes to play with my son for one year. It’s not about the money at that point,” LeBron James said, via The Athletic.
Given the current NBA rules, Bronny will be eligible for the 2024 NBA Draft. If the league, though, allows players to go directly from high school to the NBA, he could join the league in 2023.
