Bronny Might Be Headed to the NBA

Bronny James is leaving USC after one year.

It seems as though LeBron James’ son Bronny is moving on from college basketball.

It was recently reported that USC guard Bronny James has simultaneously declared for the NBA Draft, as well as enter the NCAA’s transfer portal. According to ESPN, this unique approach will allow James to meet and work out for NBA teams to see if there is a role in the league for the 19-year-old. If he determines that there’s a spot in the NBA for him, he will participate in the Draft Combine and forgo his college eligibility. If not, he’ll stay in college for another year and get more valuable reps as well as improve his draft stock.

James averaged just 4.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 2.1 assists in 19 minutes per game.

There’s still a lot we don’t know about his process when it comes to this direction. However, we do know that he will not go back to USC. In a statement released on social media, James said in part, “I’ve had a year with some ups and downs but all added to growth for me as a man, student, and athlete…Thank you to USC for an amazing freshman year.”

We’ll just have to wait and see when James will make his final decision, but this will be something to watch as we draw closer to draft season.
