The Los Angeles Lakers are unlikely to start a conventional center this season, leaving the position for Anthony Davis. While Davis is most effective at center, he has historically been reluctant to play the position full time.

The Lakers will likely start Davis, LeBron James, Russell Westbrook alongside Wayne Ellington and Trevor Ariza. Talen Horton-Tucker is also expected to compete in a camp for a starting role.

Ellington made 42.2 percent of his three-pointers last season.

Ariza gives the Lakers' versatility on defense.

The Lakers added Dwight Howard and DeAndre Jordan at center in the offseason.
