The Phoenix Suns are reportedly aiming to add even more star power this offseason, with a focus on LeBron James and his son, Bronny James.

NBA insider Evan Sidery revealed the Suns' plan on Twitter/X, stating, "The Suns are hoping to pursue LeBron James this offseason, which is why Bronny James is a very serious draft option at No. 22 overall to potentially lure him in."

Sidery mentioned that the Suns believe they can convince LeBron to join forces with their current stars: Kevin Durant, Devin Booker, and Bradley Beal, to form a historic superteam. However, LeBron would need to give up nearly $50 million to join the Suns on a veteran’s minimum contract.

The Suns face limitations in free agency due to their position in the luxury tax's second apron, meaning they can only sign outside players on veteran minimum deals.

The Suns are also looking at trade options with the No. 22 overall pick and their future 2031 pick. Many think Phoenix will use these picks and a player, possibly Jusuf Nurkic, to find another key player for their team.


Bronny James, currently at USC, will be working out for the Suns ahead of the 2024 NBA Draft on June 26. Some believe that drafting Bronny could be a move to attract his father, LeBron, who has a player option with the Los Angeles Lakers this summer.

The NBA offseason is always full of drama, and it looks like the Suns are set to make some big moves.
