Bourg adds forward Palmer
"We were looking for a player capable of playing the 2 and 3 positions, with a fairly wide offensive range," Bourg head coach Frederic Fauthoux explained to the club's website. "James fits that description, and he had a quality first season in Europe after dominating in the G-League. He is a very talented player with a lot of character."
