Get ready for Sherman Oaks Notre Dame High basketball games to be filled with celebrities for the upcoming season with Bryce James, the second son of Lakers star LeBron James, joining the team. He had his first practice with the Knights on Wednesday, coach Matt Sargeant said.

As reported last month, James began to consider attending Notre Dame after a previous announcement that he was leaving Sierra Canyon for Campbell Hall. He had been seen touring the campus and watching workouts in recent weeks with plans to enroll.

He’ll be a junior and join a Notre Dame team that already includes Mercy Miller, the son of rapper Master P. James is good friends with Notre Dame guard Angelino Mark.

The 6-foot-6 James, younger brother of former Sierra Canyon star and USC freshman Bronny James, practiced twice with Campbell Hall and played with the Vikings at an Arizona tournament in June.

“I wish him all the best,” Campbell Hall coach David Grace said. “He’s a great kid.”

He’d have to move residences to be eligible immediately at Notre Dame under CIF transfer rules. Otherwise, he’d be a sit-out period athlete who would be eligible on Dec. 24.
