Bronny still has college eligibility after leaving USC and it sounds like that is what he should do.

Bronny James has had all eyes on him ever since he announced he would be heading to USC and even during high school. However, the support for LeBron's oldest son seems to be dwindling by the second, especially since he announced he would be entering the NBA Draft. It was a pretty shocking report considering how much he struggled offensively (4.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 2.1 assists). But he does have some strong defensive prowess, so perhaps that was enough for him to test his luck. He is able to stay in school if things do not play out and that seems to be the trajectory he is on right now. According to TMZ Sports and The Ringer, teams might want to skip on Bronny James in the upcoming draft.

"Bronny is nowhere near ready. He should go back to school to develop at his own pace or he risks getting lost in the shuffle, whether or not he’s playing with his dad." Those were the words on anonymous NBA general manager to The Ringer this morning. Kevin O'Connor interviewed one GM, a front office executive, and a scout from separate organizations to get a larger gauge on Bronny and if skills could translate to the big leagues.

This NBA GM Kept It A Buck On Bronny James' Draft Stock

There is some optimism for him, as he is built and in great physical condition even with his scary heart issue before the season began. But the shooting percentages are a major concern. "Bronny is an undersized non-shooting guard. The shot looks good but doesn’t go in. Those guys scare me the most," the scout said. "It’s either lack of touch or mental, and either way those take years to correct." At the moment, Bronny is not on the 2024 Draft board and is projected to be a second round look in 2025.
