While in New Orleans, it was fun watching Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins play. Now, both of them are in the Los Angeles Lakers. But the team’s fans might not see them play together this season due to Cousins ACL injury.
However, some rumors have indicated that Anthony might not be playing in his usual center position. Some reports on the subject have also stated that the talks might be justified.
NBATV’s Jared Greenberg has also reported that Lakers don’t want Davis to play the center position that much this season. A high ranking member of Lakers official also told him that they don’t wish Davis to play big minutes at the center this season.
However, right from his days in Pelicans, Davis didn’t like playing at the center. But the good thing is that he plays better at the center position. Basketball data shows that Davis played 96 percent of his minutes at the center while in Pelicans and 55 percent of minutes at the position in his entire career.
So, it seems like Davis plays better at the center, but it’s not his favorite thing to do. Lakers might have agreed to reduce Davis last season workload at the position. For now, Lakers might have a difficult choice to make as they try to balance Davis and LeBron role.
