1985 Schwinn Traveler Bottom Bracket ?

I recently purchased a 1985 Schwinn Traveler that has Bottom Bracket that does not spin smoothly. Probably a bad or damaged ball bearing since rotation has a catch/hitch. I suspect it will just need bearing replacements. Anyone know if a sealed BB can just be used as a replacement ? Maybe easier if there is cone damage as well ?

FYI - Its a nice lugged steel cromo frame with a new powder coat paint job
