LeBron James’ son, Bronny James, has garnered significant attention due to his father’s illustrious NBA career. However, entering the 2024 NBA Draft, Bronny wasn’t widely considered a first-round pick, and this projection held true as he was not selected in the first round.

LeBron James and his fans now face a suspenseful wait to see if Bronny will be chosen in the second round, which takes place tomorrow. There is also the possibility that Bronny might go undrafted altogether.

The Los Angeles Lakers hold two picks in this draft, No. 17 and No. 55. They have already used their 17th pick to select Dalton Knecht. According to ESPN’s Jonathan Givony, Bronny James is projected to be selected by the Lakers with the No. 55 overall pick in Thursday’s second round. HoopsHype’ Michael Scotto also shared the same notion.

Bronny’s agent, Rich Paul, has indicated that Bronny wants to join a team willing to offer him a guaranteed deal. This stipulation may be causing teams to hesitate before deciding to add Bronny to their rosters.

Bettor Puts High Stakes on Bronny James for No. 1 NBA Draft Pick

Bronny James was never expected to be selected as the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA Draft. However, one bettor appeared to have high hopes for the young player, reportedly placing a $500 bet on Bronny being chosen first overall. The potential payout for this risky bet would be an astonishing $125,000.

Despite the confidence from this bettor, Bronny’s freshman season at USC was underwhelming. His performance on the court was less impressive than expected, and injury issues also hampered his progress. Given these factors, the bet appears to be a clear long shot.
