That reputation endures, in part, because Kaminsky just hasn’t distinguished himself in the NBA.
But he’ll get another opportunity – with the Kings.
Adrian Wojnarowski of EPN:
Free agent F/C Frank Kaminsky has agreed to a one-year deal with the Sacramento Kings, his agent @KB_Sports of BDA Sports tell ESPN.

Sacramento still has the mid-level exception available, but presumably, this is for less. Kaminsky signed with the Suns for the room exception last year and underwhelmed. This could be another minimum-salary signing.
Kaminsky is a stretch big with some ability to attack the basket. But he’s not nearly good enough offensively to offset his defensive and rebounding shortcomings. Kaminsky is neither fast nor strong – major flaws against NBA athleticism.
