Report: With Parker out, Kidd considers PF options

Jabari Parker is slated to be the Milwaukee Bucks starting power forward, however he won't return to the active roster until sometime in November. With Parker working his way back from the torn Achilles, head coach Jason Kidd needs to look at his options for the starting power forward position. From Charles F. Gardner of the Journal Sentinel:

    "So where does that leave the Milwaukee Bucks at the power forward spot to start the season? The Bucks coach said there are several options, and he named Chris Copeland, Johnny O'Bryant, Giannis Antetokounmpo and John Henson. ... 'Any of them could start at the 4 or play 4,' Kidd said. 'You look at Giannis playing 4. We can have Giannis at the 3, but we're not afraid to put him at the 4. We want to look at different combinations. We're going to have a different lineup for the opening game (Oct. 28 vs. New York) just because of Jabari and Giannis not being able to participate. Still some of these spots are there for the taking. We might be a deep team, but we might be looking at having less than 12 players being able to suit up and play.'"

With two remaining preseason games, both against Minnesota, Kidd will figure out who will start once the regular season begins.
