The John R. Wooden Award winner and consensus first-team All-American power forward Frank Kaminsky will sign with agent Kevin Bradbury of BDA Sports Management sources tell Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski and SB Nation. Frank Kaminsky is a 7’0” power forward/center who spent all four years of his collegiate career playing at the University of Wisconsin, leading the Badgers to back-to-back Final Four appearances and the 2015 NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Tournament National Championship.
Kaminsky truly shined at Wisconsin in his senior year, earning him several player of the year awards and accolades in addition to the Wooden Award and first-team All-American. In 2015, Kaminsky received the Naismith College Player of the Year, Associated Press College Basketball Player of the Year, National Association of Basketball Coaches Player of the Year, Oscar Robertson Trophy through the United States Basketball Writers Association (USBWA), and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Center of the Year. Kaminsky was also named Big Ten Player of the Year in 2015, first-team All-Big Ten in 2014 and 2015, and Big Ten Tournament MVP in 2015.
Kaminsky took a huge leap from his first two seasons at Wisconsin to his junior and senior years. In his senior year, Kaminsky averaged 18.8 points per game, 8.2 rebounds per game, 2.6 assists per game, and 1.5 blocks per game, leading Wisconsin in all four categories. Considered an anomaly by staying all four years in college, Kaminsky made the most of his time, managing to increase his points, rebounds, field goal percentage, three point percentage, free throw percentage, assists, and steals every year. Kaminsky is considered a lottery pick in the upcoming NBA Draft this summer and currently ranked as Chad Ford’s 13th best available prospect, according to ESPN NBA Draft and Chad Ford’s Big Board.
Kevin Bradbury is a Certified NBPA Agent who currently has 6 NBA players, according to HoopsHype. Bradbury’s current clients include Jordan Hill, Amir Johnson, and Patrick Beverley. BDA Sports Management also signed Duke’s Jahlil Okafor and Kansas’ Kelly Oubre Jr. just last week. Neither BDA Sports nor Kaminsky made any statement on their Twitter pages.
