All eyes have been on Bronny James for a while now as he’s shown promise as a basketball player throughout the years.
With LeBron James’ career nearing an end, we’re likely to see his son enter the NBA relatively soon.
However, nobody is quite sure how well Bronny will do in a professional league. With that said, it sounds like scouts are now loving what they’re seeing from LeBron James’ son.
According to NBA Central, Bronny James is now being considered a potential top 10 pick in the 2024 NBA Draft. They provide some details as to why.
ESPN projects Bronny James going top 10 in their 2024 Mock Draft:

Now, this doesn’t exactly mean that James is going to enter the 2024 Draft. This is just the first year he’ll be eligible to enter the league.
Regardless, it’s notable that he’s starting to get this type of recognition. If he continues to develop his game, there is a chance he could be a number one pick just like LeBron James.
We’ll see how it plays out though. Bronny is likely to attend a college for at least one year before entering the draft. It’s rumored he likes Ohio State and Oregon as possible destinations.
Additionally, there are rumors that LeBron James is wanting to play one season with his son in the NBA before retiring.
With his son now being a projected top-10 pick in 2024, that rumor very well could turn into a reality for LeBron James.
