One of the most notable names to join NCAA Basketball in the past decade has been Bronny James, for obvious reasons. He's the son of current NBA superstar and all-time great forward, LeBron James. The hype and expectations involving Bronny were expected to be at a huge level, especially once he was named a McDonald's All-American out of high school.

But the younger James didn't even get a chance to get going as a freshman, suffering a cardiac-related incident in preseason workouts, potentially putting both his career and life in danger. Thankfully, the freshman guard was able to make a full recovery, making his NCAA Basketball debut on December 10th.

James ultimately played 25 games as a freshman, mostly off the bench. In 19 mpg, he averaged 4.8 ppg and 2.1 apg, shooting 37% from the field and 27% from deep. He had a few double-digit scoring games, including a season-high 15 points in 20 minutes against Oregon State.

Most importantly, James is back on the court and was solid as a two-way player for the Trojans, who ultimately didn't have a great year. But changes have occurred, including several players entering the transfer portal and head coach Andy Enfield deciding to leave for the SMU job.

The Trojans have replaced him with Eric Musselman, who is bound to bring in new pieces. They'll have to replace James, who is now a free agent after entering the transfer portal and the NBA Draft process.

Which is the best option for Bronny James? Here's a look at the top options he could have going forward.
