LeBron James is nearing the end of his NBA career although he has shown he can still play at a high level despite being 37-years-old. He is on the last year of his deal with the Lakers and there is no telling when he will call it quits.

Various rumors have come out in the past weeks that former Lakers coach Phil Jackson, acting as a consultant in the coaching search of Los Angeles, wants James traded. He is allegedly leaning more on Russell Westbrook, someone who did not exactly meet expectations last season.

Regardless, James may continue playing until his son, Bronny James, finally makes the jump to the NBA. He made that clear in February and it appears this is still his plan, God willing, during a Q&A session via Twitter.

NBC Sports pointed out that the Lakes have a 1-in-30 chance of landing Bronny James. He is draft-eligible by 2024, a point when his father would already be 39-years-old.

Also worth considering is that other teams are interested in getting Bronny James to their side. The intention is apparently from a marketing standpoint and something that could see James playing for another team unless the Lakers can pull strings.

It will be a conundrum that the Lakers and James will eventually have to face. Although he has reiterated that he prefers to spend the rest of his career in Los Angeles, that intent to play alongside his son could alter that rant.

Any team who ends up getting Bronny James may have some kind of leverage adding LeBron when that time comes. But will that team be able to offer the four-time NBA champion the right amount of money and roster?

James has had the knack of assembling super teams so getting Bronny and his dad playing together may be a bit complicated and pricey.
