After an eventful summer of collegiate recruitment, the next test for Bronny James on his road to the NBA will come in a game against Overtime Elite.
Bronny and his younger brother Bryce, who recently received his first collegiate offer, are set to suit up for the California Basketball Club for a preseason tournament at OTE Arena in Atlanta.
They will face the City Reapers, led by twins Ausar Thompson and Amen Thompson, at 8:00 pm on Oct. 20. Ausar and Amen are both projected top-10 picks in the 2023 NBA Draft.
While this matchup is a big opportunity for James to showcase what he can against NBA-bound talent in the Thompson twins, it’s not the only big game that this tournament offers.
Miami’s Columbus High School Explorers, featuring Class of 2025 No. 1 overall recruit Cam Boozer, will play against YNG Dreamerz on Oct. 20 and Cold Hearts on Oct. 21. The top recruit is the son of two-time NBA All-Star big man Carlos Boozer.
After the preseason games, the OTE League season begins on Nov. 4.
