2015 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Frank Kaminsky


Position: Center

Size: 7-0, 235

School: Wisconsin, Senior


Strengths:
  • Inside/Outside threat
  • Three-point shooter
  • Effective in pick and pop situations
  • Outstanding footwork in the paint
  • Versatile back to the basket scorer
  • Terrific ball-handler for a seven-footer
  • Face-up ability
  • Can take slower defenders off the bounce
  • Solid athleticism
  • Underrated shot blocker
  • Passing ability for a big






  • Weaknesses:
  • Aggressiveness on the glass
  • Physicality/toughness
  • Will struggle in the paint defensively against NBA bigs
  • Finishing over NBA length due to a lack of explosiveness


  • Summary: Kaminsky emerged as a legitimate first-round prospect during the Badgers' Final Four run last season. His offensive versatility makes him a unique big man prospect though he lacks the true physicality and toughness of a typical NBA center. Still, Kaminsky should be a first-round pick due to his scoring touch and could end up being selected in the teens.

    Player Comparison: Kelly Olynyk.

    Though he lacks the sweet '70s hair, Kaminsky is similar to Olynyk in that both guys can score in numerous ways on the offensive end, including being able to stretch defenses with their perimeter shooting. Olynyk made huge strides during his college career just like Kaminsky, however neither brings much physicality to the paint.
