Mike Brown has settled in as coach of the Lakers, at least in terms of having a good feel of how he wants to allocate minutes.

"We've been a little more consistent with minutes in the times that we've given everybody and how we're going to use everybody offensively and even defensively," Mike Brown said Friday. "I think the guys can feel that."

Metta World Peace appears locked in as the starting small forward, while the second unit features Andrew Bynum playing with Steve Blake, Troy Murphy, Matt Barnes and Andrew Goudelock.

Murphy has taken most of the minutes previously going to Josh McRoberts.
