So who’ll play where?

In case you didn’t notice, both Chris Kaman and Marcus Camby are centers. One of them will have to slide over the the power forward spot. Preliminary indications from Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy are that Camby will be playing at the 4 spot, with Kaman staying as a 5.

That’s important for defensive reasons, as Camby will have to match up with the quicker power forwards in the Western Conference –like Amare Stoudemire, Tm Duncan and Carlos Boozer– but not as important as you might think.

Basically, on most possessions, look for the Clips guards to be able to gamble like crazy on the perimeter with two 7-footers behind them protecting the middle. It’s a lot like the situation the Lakers will have to figure out, with Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol.

Those who play fantasy basketball might be intrigued by this though, as Camby will likely gain power forward eligibility.
