Free agent center Frank Kaminsky has agreed to a one-year contract to return to the Suns, agents Mark Bartelstein and Andy Shiffman told Marc Stein of Substack.
Kaminsky, 28, had some decent stints during the Suns’ run to the Finals, proving at times to be a nice fill-in for starting center Deandre Ayton and forward Dario Saric.
Overall, Kaminsky appeared in 47 games last season, averaging 6.6 points and 4.1 rebounds, shooting 47 percent from the field. He also hit about 37 percent of his 3-pointers.
He spent his first few years with the Hornets, then signed with the Kings in 2020, but getting released before the start of the season. Phoenix then claimed him off waivers.
Saric could miss all of 2021-22 with a torn ACL, opening the door for an increased opportunity for Kaminsky.
“Newcomer JaVale McGee and second-year big man Jalen Smith will be among the other reserves vying for playing time in the frontcourt, but Kaminsky’s ability to space the floor will make him a better fit in certain lineups,” noted Luke Adams of Hoops Rumors.
