Bronny James’ chances of being drafted are thought to have taken a hit as NBA scouts got to take a close look at the USC point guard this Monday.

James declared for the NBA Draft last month, much to the surprise of just about everyone.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Jonathan Givony previously reported that the player had been medically cleared to participate in the NBA Scouting Combine, with the Fitness to Play panel giving him the green light amid concerns about his health given his cardiac scare last summer.

It would appear that Bronny James’ measurements have also raised concerns.

Having been listed at 6’4”, LeBron James’ son measured 6’1.5” without shoes, significantly shorter than everyone thought. The Trojans could have recorded his stature with him wearing shoes, though the NBA has standardized how a player’s height is measured.

In any case, 6’1.5” leaves him undersized as a point guard in the pros.

Things Are Not Looking Great For Bronny James, Save One Important Factor

Bronny James also has the fact that he averaged less than five points a game in college going against him.

However, he’s also the son of an NBA superstar whom teams will be looking to snag in free agency this summer, knowing that he will prefer to join a team Bronny is playing for. It puts him in a very unique position.

The Los Angeles Lakers are reportedly willing to draft Bronny to get LeBron to re-sign, but the Miami Heat have also been thrown into the mix.

The Heat are picking at No. 15 overall. They are ahead of the Lakers in both the first and second rounds. It’s rumored that they could draft James in the second round
