Power forward/center Frank Kaminsky has reportedly agreed to a two-year deal worth $10 million to join the Phoenix Suns, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. Kaminsky spent his first four years in the league as a member of the Charlotte Hornets, averaging 9.8 points and 4.0 rebounds per game. After intermittent stints in the starting five, Kaminsky appeared in 47 games last season, all of which came as a reserve. The 26-year-old will have to battle with the also newly-acquired Dario Saric for room in Phoenix's frontcourt alongside Deandre Ayton, but his minutes per game average of 16.1 from last season figures to increase with his inclusion in the Suns' offense.
With Kyrie Irving reportedly on his way to Brooklyn, the Boston Celtics made quick work of finding a replacement, agreeing to a deal with former Charlotte Hornets point guard Kemba Walker. Walker took two more shots per game than Irving last year, averaging more points but scoring at a less efficient rate. Its unclear what the Celtics will look like and how much of the offensive load Walker will be asked to carry, but hes likely to play a role similar to what Irving had last season. In that scenario, wed expect a slight reduction in Walkers per game averages as he wont have the ball as much and will have a secondary scorer, Jayson Tatum, wholl allow him to do less than he did in Charlotte. Walker will still be a solid fantasy player, but his overall ceiling is just a little lower this season than it was with the Hornets.
The Indiana Pacers have agreed to a deal with shooting guard Jeremy Lamb. Lamb last year averaged 15.3 points and 5.5 rebounds a contest both were career highs. To start the season Lamb will likely be the starter with star shooting guard Victor Oladipo out for the start of the season. Initially to start the season Lamb's numbers will be better than last year with him starting. Once Oladipo comes back to the lineup though expect Lamb to be the primary backup shooting guard for the Pacers and expect him to produce similar stats to those that he put up for the Hornets last year. For fantasy owners, Lamb could be a solid late-round pick with his starting role to begin next year but monitor the injury reports because that value dissipates considerably once Oladipo returns.
Charlotte Hornets shooting guard Jeremy Lamb ended the season on a high note, scoring 22 points on 6-for-12 shooting in Wednesday's loss to Orlando. He was 4-for-7 from downtown and missed a double-double by just two rebounds. Lamb, who's set to become an unrestricted free agent, managed to average a career-high 15.3 points this season, even while coming off the bench in a large chunk of the games. He's proven himself as a consistent scorer and should have no problem finding a nice paycheck in free agency. The Hornets have some salary-cap issues to work out if they want to keep Lamb in town.
Charlotte Hornets point guard Kemba Walker saved one more big performance for the regular season finale against Orlando, but he gets another long offseason after the team failed to make their way into the playoffs. Walker had 43 points on 16-for-25 shooting in a 122-114 loss, sinking four of nine triples. He added five assists, two rebounds, and two blocks. Kemba is out of contract in the summer and this could've very well been his last game as a Hornet. The 28-year-old guard produced a career year this season, averaging 25.6 points and 5.9 assists, so he'll be a hot commodity during free agency.
