Kendrick Nunn and Damian Jones have featured as part of Darvin Ham's preferred starting lineup during training camp.

Nunn and Jones join LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and Russell Westbrook as starters.

Ham said that Nunn, who missed all of last season, will play a big role for the team this upcoming year.

"It's almost like he's a new player, he's a free agent for us. So, I told him he's going to be a big part of what I'm trying to do and he's embraced it and you can tell by his play thus far," said Ham of Nunn. 

Ham then complimented Jones' athleticism and defense. 

"Damian is just a really young, athletic big. He runs like a deer. He can jump to the ceiling. Really defensive-minded. Tries to protect the rim. Sets good screens. Rolls hard. Creating a constant threat at the rim," said Ham.
