However The moment in which Howard now finds himself involves a battle with JaVale McGee for a starting role on a team James hopes to lead to a championship.
He’s been on six teams in the past five years and entered this season humbled and on a one-year minimum non-guaranteed contract.
Given all of that, few expected the Lakers’ center position to feature a true competition.
But that is exactly what’s developed. McGee and Howard have both scrimmaged on the first team
as Lakers coach Frank Vogel determines the best fits next to James and star forward Anthony Davis.
“Our centers have really impressed me – both Dwight and JaVale,” Vogel said. “JaVale’s performing at a really high level.
Dwight Howard has been all business since he came in this time around. We’re asking our whole group to have a seriousness about ourselves. He’s been an all-business type of guy
We can throw Eric at 5. He’d be the shortest 5 in the history of the NBA,” Kerr said.
“But the thing I love about Eric is his strength and athleticism and length with his wingspan to play bigger than he is.
A little bit like Draymond I’m not comparing him to Draymond defensively but, physically, he can stand up against anybody. So we may throw him out there.”
The top two centers on the depth chart have already been ruled out for an uncertain length of time.
Willie Cauley-Stein suffered a left foot sprain during a summer scrimmage
and is expected to miss all of training camp and the preseason before being reevaluated at the end of the month.
Kevon Looney suffered a hamstring sprain at practice Wednesday and has already been ruled out for Saturday. He will be reevaluated next week.
Over the summer, the Warriors traded center Damian Jones and a second-round pick to the Atlanta Hawks in exchange for Spellman.
And Howard played in only nine games last season after having surgery and was traded away by the Washington Wizards.
