James Palmer, Nebraska’s first-team All-Big Ten guard, will return to the Huskers for his senior season, he confirmed by text to The World-Herald on Friday evening. Palmer declared for the NBA draft but didn’t hire an agent, leaving him eligible to return as long as he withdrew by next Wednesday. The 6-foot-6 senior from Upper Marlboro, Maryland, had workouts with three franchises : Boston, Oklahoma City and the Los Angeles Clippers.
There seems to be some miscommunication between the Big Baller Brand’s camp and the defending world champs regarding LiAngelo Ball. Despite what the 19-year-old Ball told HoopsHype’s Alex Kennedy, the Warriors deny they’ve scheduled a private, pre-draft workout with the younger brother of Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball. In refuting what the younger Ball said, a Warriors spokesman said Thursday the team has no specific plans to meet with LiAngelo, who quit UCLA’s team in his freshman season after being arrested for shoplifting in China on a team trip this past season. LiAngelo told HoopsHype he’s already arranged private meetings with the Warriors, Clippers and Lakers before the NBA Draft on June 21.
