What is the potential of an uncharged metal sphere?

The question is-
"Find the potential of an uncharged metal sphere provided that a point charge q is located at a
distance r from its center."
now, what is intuitive is that because of induction there will be some negative charges at the side where there is the charge .. But what does it leads to??
How can I actually calculate the potential?
