Most teams in the NBA typically run a handful of promotions throughout the regular season, usually giving away free items such as t-shirts or bobbleheads. Wisconsin fans might appreciate one of the Charlotte Hornets promotions this upcoming December.

Announced a few days ago, the Hornets posted their 2017-18 promotional schedule on Twitter:

Yup, on December 9th the Hornets will be giving away a Frank Kaminsky Stormtrooper Bobblehead to the first 7,500 fans in attendance. The promotion is likely based around the upcoming Star Wars movie that will release in mid-December, but it is definitely a more original piece of memorabilia.

The former Badger had a more productive season at Charlotte in his second year and is looking to continue to improve. Last year he averaged 26.1 minutes per game, scoring 11.7 points and adding 4.5 rebounds per outing. Kaminsky was selected with the 9th pick in the 2015 NBA Draft after finishing his senior season at Wisconsin. Kaminsky was named the National Player of the year in 2014-15 and was a consensus first-team All-American.

As for the Stormtrooper promotion, Kaminsky seems to approve.
