Butler vs. Nebraska, 3.20

Nebraska guard James Palmer (0) gets the ball stripped by Butler’s Jordan Tucker (1) in the first half March 20 during their first-round game of the National Invitational Tournament at Pinnacle Bank Arena.

James Palmer was not selected in the NBA Draft, and he wasn't immediately signed after the draft. His June was somewhat quiet.

The former Husker was far from quiet in his Summer League debut with the Phoenix Suns.

Palmer scored a team-high 23 points on 8-of-18 shooting in the Suns' 105-100 overtime win against the New York Knicks on Sunday in Las Vegas.
