Fox Sports’ Nick Wright has suggested a theory that could see LeBron James and his son, Bronny James, playing together for the Cleveland Cavaliers in the future. The younger James recently committed to playing college basketball for the University of Southern California (USC), where Evan Mobley, whom the Cavs drafted third overall in the 2021 NBA Draft, also played. Wright’s theory is that the Cavs could use their remaining first-round pick in 2024, the year Bronny would graduate, to bring him to the team.
While it would be a fun idea for fans, there are several obstacles to overcome, such as whether Bronny will even be available for the draft, whether the Cavs will still have that pick, and what the salary cap would look like with several star players on the team.
