2015 NBA Draft: Frank Kaminsky Profile

With just about 24 hours to go until the 2015 NBA Draft, the Charlotte Hornets to be one of the teams poised to make some serious moves. One of the moves they're considering is saying goodbye to Cody Zeller and then potentially saying hello to the Player of the Year in college basketball.

According to Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Hornets are indeed looking to shop their center for some players that can work the wing, and if they can get this done, Wisconsin's Frank Kaminsky could be a serious candidate for the team's No. 9 overall pick on Thursday night.


This isn't the first time that Zeller's name has been mentioned in potential trade talks for the Hornets, but with them specifically targeting players that can do some damage on the wing, then looking at Kaminsky makes a ton of sense. While some are skeptical of how Kaminsky will translate into the NBA, there are equally as many people who believe that he can end up bringing some much-needed versatility for a team for years to come.

In just two years in his NBA career with the Hornets, Zeller has attempted just two three-point shots. In contrast to that, we've seen the damage that Kaminsky could do from outside the line. Last season in helping lead the Badgers to the National Championship Game, the senior shot just a little over 41 percent from three-point range on 101 attempts.

It's a gamble for the Hornets, yes, but on paper right now it all certainly makes a bit of sense.
