    Can a team that wants to play more small-ball afford two backup centers making $4MM a year? That’s Ian Mahinmi’s salary, too.

      Lavoy Allen isn’t a center , he can play center but his natural position is power forward with David west gone Allen is much needed , I think they should give him a shot at starting power forward , and mahinmi is under 7 foot and pretty light on his feet for a center , I can see them playing ian more than hilbert when playing small
      Starting 5:
      Paul George ,George hill , monta E, Lavoy Allen , Roy hilbert ( if not traded) if traded Ian mahinmi

    Lavoy can play and He should be the starting four. PG13 doesn’t want to play heavy minutes at the four and they shouldn’t force him to right away. Pacers should dip their toe in the small-ball-water instead of cannon-balling in.
