The Lakers, currently holding the No. 55 pick, are in a position to select Bronny. Some experts, like Bill Simmons and Ryen Russillo from The Ringer, believe a team might take a chance on Bronny to entice LeBron to stay. 

Despite a challenging freshman season for Bronny, there's speculation that a team might pick him in hopes of securing LeBron's commitment.

With the draft approaching, all eyes are on the Lakers and their potential move. Will they take a flyer on Bronny James this summer? Only time will tell.
