Will the Phoenix Suns draft Bronny James to snag LeBron?

Phoenix, Arizona - While many speculate about LeBron James's future with the Los Angeles Lakers, the Phoenix Suns are reportedly planning a strategic move to sway the NBA superstar.

The Phoenix Suns are reportedly considering Bronny James as a potential pick in this year's NBA Draft to possibly lure his father, LeBron James (r.), from the Lakers.

According to Evan Sidery of Forbes, the Suns are eyeing LeBron's son, Bronny James, as a potential draft pick in this year's NBA Draft, despite their only selection being at a modest No. 22 overall.

The 19-year-old has expressed his desire to earn his spot in the NBA based on his own skills and merit rather than riding on the coattails of his father's all-star career.

"This is a serious business. I don't feel like there would be a thought of 'I'm just drafting this kid just because I'm gonna get his dad.' I don't think a GM would really allow that," Bronny shared.

The Suns' decision to work out Bronny could suggest a ploy to leverage his relationship with LeBron – but the bold strategy is not without risks, as LeBroon is only expected to play for another two years.
