James Palmer Jr. is an aggressive, offensive-minded wing player that will slash to the basket to get scores, and he also can facilitate for his team to collect assists.  He will need to improve his outside shot and show that he can lock down upper echelon opponents on the defensive end.  Right now, he looks to be a second round prospect for the 2019 draft.
