    Clippers' Josh Smith to receive time at center this season

    Clippers power forward Josh Smith will log 'a lot' of time at center this season, Dan Woike of the Orange County Register reports. Coach Doc Rivers revealed the news Monday, but his minutes at center behind DeAndre Jordan will likely be a patch-work effort rather than one player dominating the workload. Still, the development opens up another spot for Smith to pick up run with his third squad in as many seasons. If he's used in a super-utility role at the three, four, and five, he could match the 26 minutes per game that he earned with the Rockets in 2014-15.
