Frank Kaminsky is a star basketball player, bad dancer and lover of Skittles. Thursday, he added one more distinction to that list: basketball analyst.
The former Wisconsin star forward is helping out with ESPN’s coverage of the NBA draft combine on Thursday and Friday. Kaminsky went through the combine and draft process two years ago before going ninth overall in the 2015 NBA Draft.

Kaminsky just finished his second NBA season with the Charlotte Hornets, and his statistics improved across the board during the 2016-17 season. Kaminsky averaged 11.7 points and 4.5 rebounds in 26.1 minutes per game for the Hornets.
One of Kaminsky’s former teammates is among the 67 players invited to this year’s combine. Wisconsin forward Nigel Hayes will be going through workouts in Chicago in front of pro scouts. Hopefully, Kaminsky gets to interview him at some point.
