Bronny James is a standout high school basketball prospect and the eldest son of Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James.
Between his undeniable skillset and his royal bloodline, talk of Bronny eventually making it to the NBA has followed him around for years.
With college on the horizon, many have now begun to speculate what the youngster’s pro prospects may look like.
This week, NBA insider Chris Fedor revealed what Bronny’s likely NBA draft position looks like as of right now.
“By all accounts, everybody that I’ve talked to around the NBA that does this for a living, that scouts this, they talk about Bronny as late first-round pick, early second-round pick type of player,” Fedor noted.
“Now that could change. He could have a great season this year in high school, and then he could go somewhere to college and have a great freshman season and then the status quo changes.”
This week, a new dark horse suitor emerged for Bronny’s collegiate services. Beyond that, five powerhouses have shown extreme interest in recruiting him – though he has yet to show any sort of preference or leaning himself.
A lot of questions will be answered when Bronny settles on a university and participates in some games at the next level. His athleticism and instincts are the off-the-charts strong; his size could create some issues.
If he delivers and shows an ability to play at or beyond expectations, moving up in the first round of the draft is totally feasible.

If Bronny fails to impress, a LiAngelo Ball-type situation would seem to be within the realm of possibility as well.
How will Bronny’s hoops future ultimately shake out when everything is said and done?
Time will tell.
