Portsmouth Invitational Tournament Recap, All-Third Team
April 16, 2010
Kyle Nelson

As a senior, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi swingman Kevin Palmer scored 28 points against Texas, 23 points against Mississippi, and 22 points against Houston while averaging just under 20 points per game. He managed to go mostly unnoticed, however, and arrived at Portsmouth firmly under the radar. Ultimately, Palmer had a solid showing and revealed himself as one of the campís more interesting long-term wing prospects.

Though he has a very skinny and undeveloped upper body, he has good size for the wing at 6í6. His style of play is heavily reliant on his athleticism, from running the floor well in transition to making an impact with his physical tools on the defensive end. While his defensive fundamentals are not great, he has some intriguing things to work with and should only get better with continued coaching and increased strength.

Palmer is likely a better shooter than his percentages indicate, boasting a fairly consistent shooting motion and a quick release. While his mechanics and shot selection could use some work, Palmer should continue to develop in this area as his role changes dramatically at the professional level. He also needs to improve his ball handling, as it limits his effectiveness in transition and in one-on-one situations.

Palmer is very much an incomplete player at this point and, like Edwin Ubiles, has the potential to transform into a much better player down the road. He will have ample opportunities to develop as a role player the D-League or Europe as he showed some intriguing potential in college and at Portsmouth.
