There have been many famous father-son duo in sports over the years. Barry Bonds, Kobe Bryant, Ken Griffey Jr., Patrick Mahomes and Peyton Manning are among high-profile stars with fathers who also played professional sports.
There is plenty of potential to add to the list as LeBron James, Dikembe Mutombo, Shaquille O'Neal, Hakeem Olajuwon and Dwyane Wade are among those with kids playing high school basketball.
Several of second generation players are regarded as Top 100 prospects in their class.
Read on for a look at 10 sons of former and current NBA players ready to leave their mark on high school basketball next season.
1. D.J. Wagner, Camden (N.J.)
Father: DaJuan Wagner
season, Wagner led Camden to the No. 16 spot in the MaxPreps Top 25,
averaging a team-high 18.5 points per contest. Widely regarded as the
top prospect in the Class of 2023, Wagner has a long NBA lineage as both
his father and grandfather (Milt Wagner) played in the league after
stellar amateur careers.
Father: Adrian Griffin

take over a game and is a strong rebounder. He is committed to play for Duke.
Father: Dikembe Mutombo
Mutombo is a late bloomer, rising from the No. 198 overall prospect in
the Class of 2021 to the No. 65 overall prospect in the most recent update.
Father: Mike Miller
like his father, Mason is a terrific shooter. Listed at 6-9, a long and lanky frame will need to
develop muscle for the next level. Expect a big senior year for the No.
60 overall prospect in the Class of 2021.
Father: LeBron James
Although Bronny played a limited role off the bench for the Trailblazers last season, he showed flashes of his potential. His most memorable moment came against his father's alma mater, St. Vincent St. Mary (Akron, Ohio), putting up a career high 15 points on 7 of 10 shooting including the go-ahead bucket late in the game.
Father: Juwan Howard
Jett put up strong numbers as a sophomore for University (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.), averaging 15.6 points, 3.7 assists and 2.8 rebounds per contest. He is regarded as a Top 60 prospect in the Class of 2022 and announced he will be attending IMG Academy for his junior year.
Father: Shaquille O'Neal
The youngest of Shaq's five children, Shaqir is an under the radar 6-5 shooting guard still looking for a college scholarship offer. He is regarded as a 3-star prospect and ranks as the nation's No. 211 overall prospect in the Class of 2021.
8. Abdullah Olajuwon, Village (Houston, Texas)
Father: Hakeem Olajuwon
Listed at 6-3, little information is available on the son of the one of the most dominant big men in NBA history. Next season, Abdullah will be a junior looking to make a name for himself where his father shined in Houston.
Father: Dwyane Wade
