Former Nebraska basketball player James Palmer will reportedly join the Los Angeles Clippers with a chance to audition for a regular-season roster spot.
The L.A. Times reported on Friday that Palmer is expected to sign an Exhibit 10 deal, which is a one-year contract worth a minimum salary that may include a bonus up to $50,000. Teams can carry six Exhibit 10 contracts at a time, allowing them to fill their expanded roster during the offseason.
Players on these deals can participate in training camp, working out to earn a roster spot with the NBA team or G League affiliate. NBA teams begin training camp in late September.
Palmer, who ranked third in the Big Ten in scoring and fourth in steals last season, went undrafted but has received plenty of NBA buzz. He played with the Phoenix Suns during the Las Vegas Summer League earlier this month. He also competed in the Reese's College All-Star Game during the Final Four, the Portsmouth Invitational and the NBA G League Elite Camp.
