I wasn't aware Frank had offers from other teams. He comments on it here:

You can hear it in his voice that he gets real emotional. Good guy, class act. Good for him that he had this game - and good for us.
He gives much more than he takes. No matter his flaws and limitations, hats off for him today.

It was great to see him have a career night. Everything was falling for him, and he played within the system. Can't ask for more from a bench player.

Definitely gained respect for him after listening to it. He doesn’t seem entitled like many or most NBA players.

He’s played well so far this season. Even defensively he’s looked the best this season than he’s done in years past with the Suns.

Definitely a good player to have on the vet min as the 3rd backup big.

Would be the feel-good story of the year if he's in the mix ... he would have to take minutes away from McGee and/or Ayton.

Very true! :wink:
But the tank would deserve it IF it weren't based partially on minutes played. I'd love the message that it'd send, to always be ready. And that it's about effort and opportunity that even bench players and vet minimum players can stand out if they continue working on their craft and staying diligent.

Even though I had the thought, stories about this after 3 good games is a little silly. That blog is kind of weird. They come up with the most hot take stories on small sample size so fast. Kind of like Sidery's cherry picked stat tweets.

I really think he's way better than that. Remember Damian Jones? Remember Marquise Chriss? Remember Pat Burke? Remember Daniel Santiago? Remember when young floundering versions of Robin Lopez and Alex Len were our STARTERS!? Kaminsky gets way too much crap around here for being a surprisingly serviceable backup for his pay grade. I'm not exactly pumped to see him check into a game but I'm sure as hell glad it's him instead of some totally lost foul machine.

Agree. Frank is better than unplayable. He arguably is outplaying Ayton. He did last night with the career 31 pts.

Now how do we re-sign him is the question? Is he worth the max? I kid, I kid...


Frank is literally the worst player in the NBA 2 of the last 3 seasons on this team. I'm glad he's playing well now, but to pretend like his entire tenure here other than about 2 weeks for all of the last 2 seasons was anything other than an unmitigated disaster is delusional.

How in the world the worst player in the NBA could be someone that has been in the rotation on two different NBA teams during all his seven years in the league?

Players who are really terrible do not play in the league more than a couple seasons, three at most if some franchise believe yet in his "potential".

Worst player in the league for the last couple of years has to be some unknown who did not play at all or just a few minutes here and there and now is not in the league anymore.

You've said this a lot, but there are a lot of worse players in the NBA. I would never say he is outplaying Ayton or he is worthy of major minutes or he is any good defensively, but he has a pretty solid offensive IQ, range, can pass, score inside, hit the 3, etc. He is definitely a fairly solid 3rd stringer. But any of the talk of "We are just as good with McGee/Frank" as Ayton is nonsense and trying to compare stats when defenses are not going to play to stop Kaminsky is ridiculous for others to say as well.

Yeah, even last year he wasn't the worst player on our team. Damian Jones was definitely worse. Heck, we've probably had multiple worse players every year before that for awhile.

Looks like Frank could be out for a long time with that stress fracture. Feel bad for him after the hot start.

Suns might have to release him to open up a roster spot.

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming Wow! What a Ride!-H.S.T.

Seems like the kind of guy we'd be happy to keep brining back at the minimum. Serviceable 3rd guy with size and skill. Loved by the team.

A bit of a udonis haslem situation (obvs Frank being a different kind of dude)

Don't we have a roster spot open?

Not that we might not eventually need another one....with our two athletic backup Cs out.

I wonder if this will get us to reconsider the Thad Young trade (again). Good timing since we should hopefully have a good look at him in today's game

Lebron - Zion, Barrett like Melo, wade like Culver, garland like tj ford, hunter like bosh, white like Barbosa, Clarke like David West. I think this draft is actually going to be deeper though
