1. Frank Kaminsky

The Wisconsin rookie drew a lot of attention when the Hornets grabbed him with the ninth pick. Some of that was rumors of what the Boston Celtics had attempted to give up to get into that spot.
Kaminsky has an outside shooting game that is a good match for the inside scoring game of Al Jefferson.
Kaminsky offers a seven foot frame that should at least deter some scorers in the post.
I believe that the Hornets hope Kaminsky wins the spot outright, as that would be the best outcome for the team as it develops in the future.

Did get banged around a little in summer league.
Not a reputation as a rim protector.
Is he athletic enough?
