Kaminsky has the third-year of his rookie contract picked up by the team

NBA: Preseason-Charlotte Hornets at Minnesota Timberwolves Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Frank Kaminsky will have the third year option of his rookie contract exercised by the Charlotte Hornets, according to Adi Joseph of Sporting News:

While it was always likely the team would exercise his option, Joseph’s follow-up tweet shows it’s never fully guaranteed. The Hornets though, appear high on Kaminsky, which left little doubt that this would happen.

Kaminsky made his season debut last night against the Boston Celtics. He finished with 11 points, four rebounds, and three assists in 24 minutes.

Last season, he averaged 7.5 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 1.2 assists, playing 81 games, and starting three. He’ll be expected to a prominent part of Charlotte’s second unit, and building off a solid rookie season.
