Atlanta Hawks Bring Another Center Into The Mix With One-Year Contract

After his season came to an early end due to knee surgery, seven-year veteran free agent big man Frank Kaminsky has landed himself a job with the Atlanta Hawks.

The Athletic reports that it's a minimum salary contract. Kaminsky's three-year run with the Phoenix Suns ended prematurely when a stress reaction in his knee forced him to the sidelines after playing in only nine games last season. 

Surgery was eventually needed, though it appears he'll be fully healthy in time for training camp. 

The 7-footer has career marks of 9.4 points and 4.1 rebounds in about 21 minutes of average game time. He can also shoot the three a little, with a 35% career mark. 

He'll serve as a third center and another big man off the bench for the Hawks. 

Kaminsky was drafted by the Charlotte Hornets with the No. 9 overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, and spent his first four years in the league there.
