The Suns have three viable players at small forward in Marcus Morris, P.J. Tucker and Gerald Green.
Morris can play either forward position but might start alongside twin brother Markieff. Marcus has some shooting range and some power, although he's not as strong as his brother.
The Lakers might start Nick Young at small forward. Wesley Johnson is also an option, although the former Sun may come off the bench.
Young is a high-volume scorer. Johnson is still looking to emerge as a consistent contributor. The Lakers hope Johnson develops into a lock-down defender with a steady outside shot.
Small forward is not a standout position for either franchise.
Heading into camp, Gasol is probably penciled in as the power forward. While that wasn't a natural fit for Gasol last season alongside Dwight Howard, D'Antoni can better play to the 7-footer's strengths next to Kaman.
Gasol can be the inside focus. Kaman has a steady jump shot and thrives in the pick and roll.
Williams and Landry also can play power forward.
Markieff Morris has an impressive combination of power and skill. He's strong and can play in the post but also can make the three-point shot. His best-case scenario might be developing into a Rasheed Wallace-type player, although Morris' inside game hasn't yet neared Wallace's prime.
Channing Frye is hoping to get back on the court after a heart issue. His status is unclear.
The Suns also have Miles Plumlee and can play Marcus Morris at the four.
With Gasol starting, the Lakers clearly have the advantage. If it's Hill, the two teams are about even at power forward.
Markieff Morris, Frye and even Plumlee can play center, but Phoenix isn't particularly strong at the position.
