I think they're going to play him in a similar fashion to what they did with Odom in terms of his position. When Bynum gets his first breather late in the 1st qtr, Jamison will come in at the 4 and Gasol will switch to the 5, and then Bynum will replace Gasol early in the 2nd qtr, and Jamison will play approximately 24-26 mpg as the primary(only) big off the bench.

Honestly if I was LA I would have re-signed Hill instead. He's not only a better fit, but likely more valuable and better production wise in the same role.
Jamison can stretch the floor for them which Hill couldn't.... I think it's a great add. Especially if they land dwight.... so he'd be in a role similar to Ryan Anderson and Rashard Lewis before him.
