Just last week, the Phoenix Suns declined Kaminsky’s $5.2 million team option, allowing him to test the free agent waters. Still just 27 years old, the 7-footer drew interest from the Sacramento Kings and has agreed to a one-year, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Kaminsky was the No. 9 overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft. While he hasn’t developed into the star that teams hoped he could have as a top-ten pick, he’s been solid throughout his career. Last season with the Suns, Kaminsky averaged 9.7 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.9 assists per contest.
While he likely won’t start, Kaminsky will provide depth in the frontcourt as the Kings look to get back on track after making several moves this offseason. He is a solid three-point shooter, at .347 on his career, which is excellent for a player of his size.
