Bronny James Is Ghosting Every Team Other Than Lakers and Suns


Bronny James’ agent, Rich Paul, appears to have very little interest in his client heading to any team other than the Lakers or Suns.

Speaking on a recent episode of NBA Today, ESPN’s Jonathan Givony said other teams had been unable to organise a workout with James.

“NBA teams that I talk to say they cannot get Bronny James into their building, teams that are drafting in the late 20s and the 30s,” Givony said. “The Phoenix Suns have a second workout scheduled with Bronny later this week but other than that we have not seen any NBA team be able to work him out.

“The sense among teams is that his agent, Rich Paul, does not want him on a two-way contract. The range that he’s going to be picked, that 40 to 58 range, that’s where two-way contracts are handed out. So it’s looking right now that Bronny James is going to slide there (to the Lakers) at 55. I don’t think any NBA team wants to pick him and deal with the repercussions of that. So that’s the way it’s trending as of today.”

Despite the seemingly likely scenario of James going to the Lakers, he has previously made it clear that playing with his father is not a dream of his.

“No, never,” he said at the NBA Draft combine. “My dream has always just been to put my name out, make a name for myself, and get to the NBA, which is everyone’s end goal that’s here. I never thought about just playing with my dad, but of course he’s brought it up a couple of times. But yeah, I don’t think about it much.”

James won’t have to wait long to find out where he’s heading, with the NBA Draft scheduled for June 26-27.
