Bronny James debuts for Lakers, struggles with shooting

Bronny James showed promise but struggled with his shot in his first game for the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday, scoring four points on two-for-nine shooting as the Lakers fell 108-94 to the Sacramento Kings in their Summer League matchup.

The 19-year-old son of all-time great LeBron James scored his first points since being drafted last month on a driving layup off the glass in the second quarter.

“That’s tough,” LeBron James said when looking at a replay of the bucket on a cell phone at Team USA training camp.

“Get loose!”

Bronny’s second basket came in the third quarter when he shook his defender with a savvy behind-the-back dribble and hit a pull-up jumper from 15 feet away.

He finished with two rebounds, two assists and a steal in 21 minutes in the game in San Francisco.

A highly-touted high-school player, Bronny played at the University of Southern California (USC) for a single season, which was cut short after he suffered a cardiac arrest last year.
