Heat Hornets Basketball

Frank Kaminsky averaged 8.6 points and 3.5 rebounds in a career-low 16.1 minutes per game for the Charlotte Hornets last season.

Former University of Wisconsin star Frank Kaminsky has agreed to a two-year, $10 million contract with the Phoenix Suns, Kaminsky’s agent told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Monday.

Kaminsky, 26, will likely be a backup power forward for the Suns.

Charlotte declined to make a qualifying offer for Kaminsky, a fifth-year pro who was drafted by the Hornets with the ninth overall pick in the 2015 draft.  Kaminsky, a 7-footer, has had two double-digit scoring seasons in the NBA and has shot 37 percent from 3-point range in the past two years. He played in just 47 games under first-year Hornets coach James Borrego last season.

Dario Saric, who the Suns will acquire in an agreed-upon trade that can become official on July 6, is expected to be the Suns’ starting power forward.

Kaminsky will add depth to a frontcourt that also includes centers Deandre Ayton and Aron Baynes.
