CHA 2 Power Forward/Center: 7’0, 240 lbs; 3rd year, Wisconsin 

NBA Role: offensive-minded, hybrid 4/5 • UnderDOG

Frank ‘The Tank’ Kaminsky, a former National Player of the Year at Wisconsin, has the dangerous shooting touch and ball skills (as a 7-footer) to make a huge imprint in Charlotte; offensively, Frank is an emerging weapon – pops out for threes, hits turnaround Js, and thrives playing off a a strong penetrator like Kemba Walker; passes well out of the high post, can find open shooters & cutters; not the quickest big but Frank can beat his man off the dribble every now and again (likes attacking after faking his three ball); once a dumpster fire on D, Kaminsky is making strides to slide his feet better and take charges in the lane – needs to up his intensity on the glass, however; is Frank a future starter (at the five) or will Coach Steve Clifford utilize him strictly as a stretch-four-role-player in the second unit?; borderline Star UnderDOG
