Is Wisconsin junior Frank Kaminsky's stock rising as a future NBA pick after his impressive performance in the NCAA Tournament?
Jonathan Givony of Draft Express tweeted as reported by Bleacher Report that: Kaminsky has definitely put himself in the conversation with the season he's had. Barely played his first 2 years, now a legit NBA prospect.
As Daniel O'Brien of Bleacher Report notes, Kaminsky has made some heads turn with his ability to shoot the ball. The 7-footer can score anywhere on the floor, whether it is in the paint or beyond the three-point area. In fact, he can hit step-back three pointers in clutch situations, which is impressive for a player his size. He does not have extraordinary ball-handling skills, but makes up for it with his size and good footwork.
Jon Rothstein of CBSSports.com shares the same observations. He mentions that Kaminsky has a game comparable to that of former All-Star Brad Miller, especially during his productive seasons with the Indiana Pacers and Sacramento Kings. Rothstein adds: "After averaging only 4.2 points last year as a sophomore, the 7-footer was the best player on the floor in Wisconsin's 64-63 overtime win over Arizona on Saturday night. Kaminsky beat the Wildcats both inside and out, finishing with 28 points and adept at getting his shot off in different areas on the floor, Kaminsky has a game that's similar to former NBA big man Brad Miller when he was with the Sacramento Kings and the Indiana Pacers. A great passer with deep range, Kaminsky is the primary reason why Wisconsin is headed to the Final Four for the first time in Bo Ryan's tenure in Madison."
