Frank Kaminsky is taking his talents to the Phoenix Suns, and he’s getting paid a solid chunk of money to do it.
The legendary college basketball player agreed to a two-year deal late Monday afternoon with the Suns worth $10 million. (RELATED: Kevin Durant Will Sign With The Brooklyn Nets For $164 Million, Kyrie Irving Will Get $141 Million)

This is awesome news for Frank the Tank. He had a brutal start to the season, and it didn’t look like his future was too bright.
However, he bounced back down the stretch and got paid for it. For a guy who is only 26, having more than $20 million in guaranteed contract earnings isn’t too bad at all.
His NBA career has been up and down since entering the league, and some would argue he hasn’t lived up to the hype set by being the best player in all of college.
However, he’s making his money, he’s sticking around and that’s a lot more than can be said for most players.

I also wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t remind everybody of when Wisconsin and Kaminsky bounced an undefeated Kentucky from the tournament in the Final Four.
That might have been the best college basketball game I’ve ever seen.
Shoutout to Kaminsky for getting his money.
