It is widely expected that Bronny James, the eldest son of Lakers superstar LeBron James, will go to college next year after graduating from Sierra Canyon highschool.

However, he has another option. The 18-year-old could follow the footsteps of LaMelo Ball, among other prospects, and become a professional and play in National Basketball League (NBL) in Australia.

NBL commissioner Jeremy Loeliger spoke with The Sporting Tribune, revealing that the league had very preliminary conversations with Bronny’s representatives and expressed their interest in bringing him Down Under for their Next Stars program.
