Byron Scott is considering playing Kobe Bryant at small forward in order to get him on the court at the same time as D'Angelo Russell and Jordan Clarkson.
During a five-on-five scrimmage, those three backcourt players were joined by Julius Randle and Roy Hibbert.
“I think the more those guys can play together, the better,” Scott said. “I’m going to try that out this first week, see how it goes and then I’ll start mixing and matching a little bit more. It looked good.”
Putting Bryant on the floor with Russell and Clarkson makes his job easier.
“I don’t have to handle the ball really at all,” Bryant said. “Gives me more time to catch and shoot.”
