Although James joined FaZe Clan, he is not officially under contract with the organization, a representative told TMZ Sports:

"He does not have a contract with FaZe Clan."

"He joined as our newest member. It's a very authentic relationship that developed between FaZe talent and Bronny directly.

"As an avid gamer himself, Bronny developed a relationship with FaZe talent over time playing CoD, Fortnite, NBA2K and more at a high skill level, and often with other FaZe members. Everyone is incredibly excited to have him as our newest member."

James isn't the gaming organization's only connection to the basketball world. Philadelphia 76ers superstar Ben Simmons joined FaZe Clan last week:

Other professional athletes operating as FaZe Clan content creators include Pittsburgh Steelers wideout JuJu Smith-Schuster and Miami Heat big man Meyers Leonard. Hip-hop artists Offset, Lil Yachty and Ugly God are also content creators for FaZe. 

The esports organization has teams competing in Call of Duty, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Fortnite and VALORANT, among other games.
