Bronny James staying in NBA Draft, will not return to college, according to Rich Paul

Bronny James will forgo his remaining college eligibility and remain in the 2024 NBA Draft, his agent, Rich Paul, told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Jonathan Givony.

James, 19, has until 11:59 p.m. ET on Wednesday to make his intention clear ahead the June 26-27 draft.

In April, James, son of NBA superstar LeBron James, declared for the draft while maintaining his college eligibility and entered the NCAA transfer portal. It was expected he would go pro after he was medically cleared by the NBA’s Fitness to Play Panel earlier this month.
