Frank Vogel said "Our centers have really impressed me" on Tuesday, referring to Dwight Howard and JaVale McGee.
The Lakers' championship odds took a hit when DeMarcus Cousins went down with a torn ACL over the summer, but there's a chance that McGee and Howard can mostly fill that void next to Anthony Davis. Vogel mention that "JaVale's performing at a really high level" and that "Dwight Howard has been all business since he came in this time around." If either or both players can get over twenty minutes per game this season, they could be well-worth a late-round pick. McGee was near the top-50 last season in 22.3 mpg, and Howard had hovered around No. 100 (and much higher for punt free throw teams) for a few seasons prior to his stint with he Wizards.
