Frank Kaminsky: 2 years, $9.8 million (Phoenix Suns)

The Phoenix Suns‘ offseason strategy of adding shooting — albeit at the cost of athleticism and defense — has been fairly obvious, and the addition of Frank Kaminsky on the room exception perfectly fits that same category.

In his fourth season in the league, Frank the Tank saw his minutes shrink to a career-low 16.1 per game, which explains his meager averages of 8.6 points and 3.6 rebounds a night. However, he did make 36 percent of his 3.0 long range attempts per game, and the year before that, he shot 38 percent from downtown.

Kaminsky will likely slot in behind Dario Saric at the 4, but it’s hard to get too excited about a move like this. Kaminsky can shoot and he’s a smart player, but he’s not athletic, nor is he a presence on the defensive end, which carries on a worrisome trend for most of Phoenix’s offseason additions.

Grade: C
