The possibility of LeBron James teaming up with his son, Bronny James in the NBA is getting closer to reality.

A recent mock draft by ESPN projected Bronny as a top 10 pick in the 2024 NBA draft, placing him as the Orlando Magic’s 10th overall pick next year.

The 18-year-old is the oldest of the four-time NBA champion's three children and is a senior at Sierra Canyon High School in Southern California.

Givony noted that the younger James is developing into arguably the best perimeter defender in his class while making strides with his shooting and playmaking.

NBA's father-and-son duo?

That will be music to his father’s ears as LeBron has made it no secret he wants to play with his son before he retires for good in the NBA.

The league’s new scoring king revealed in an interview back in August his desire to play alongside his sons, per USA Today.

James then grabbed the headlines in a 2021 interview when he said that he would rather retire than ever suit up for the Magic, which is coincidentally the team predicted to select Bronny in the mock draft.

LeBron has since changed his tone, saying he would love to share the basketball court with his son, even if they end up as opponents.
