While LeBron has been outspoken about wanting to play with Bronny in the NBA, this is the first confirmation from an insider that the Lakers are interested in making that happen. 

Although Charania also noted how this James family union still isn’t a done deal. 

“Bronny James obviously will have a decision to make, going through the pre-draft process,” he said. “So that is where [the Lakers] stand with LeBron James, and potentially with Bronny James.”
