The Phoenix Suns on Wednesday announced the signing of forward Frank Kaminsky to a multiyear contract. 

“Frank is an exceptional shooter who will help us space the floor and give our guards more room to operate,” Suns General Manager James Jones said in a release. “His size and strong decision-making skills are also a great fit for the team we are building, so we are excited to welcome Frank to Phoenix.”

Kaminsky, 26, has played all four years of his NBA career with the Charlotte Hornets, which drafted him ninth overall out of Wisconsin in 2015.

The 7-foot, 240-pound power forward’s has a career average of 9.8 points per game on 41.9% shooting. He brings his efficient outside shooting ability for his size. He has also averaged 4.0 rebounds per game for his career.

Kaminsky’s deal is believed to worth $10 million over two years, according to a report from ESPN

Kaminsky shot 37.3% from beyond the arc with 154 total makes over the last two seasons, which is the second-best percentage of any qualified seven-footer behind only Karl-Anthony Towns (40.9%) over that period.

Last season, Kaminsky shot a career-best 46.3% from the field and averaged 8.6 points per game.

Kaminsky will wear No. 8 for the Suns.
