LeBron “Bronny” James Jr. has joined esports FaZe Clan.

The younger James is a promising basketball player who also is known as an avid consumer of video games. The 15-year-old is expected to stream for the organization, which announced their affiliation in a pair of tweets on Sunday.

One of them included a video that mixed some of James’ best moves on the basketball court with his best action in Fortnite and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

James, a sophomore at Sierra Canyon School in Chatsworth, Calif., is a 6-foot-2 guard listed at No. 24 in ESPN’s recruiting rankings for the Class of 2023. In the video game world, he’ll play as “FaZe Bronny.”

Last week, Philadelphia 76ers star Ben Simmons joined FaZe Clan as an investor and member, calling the esports company a “home away from home.”

Simmons will be an ambassador for content under the name “FaZe Simmo.”
