This could work for Howard in some cases, but if that player has a solid driving or mid-range game, the Sixers may have to bench Howard and play either Ben Simmons, Mike Scott, or Paul Reed at the small-ball center position. Teams like the Nets who could play Blake Griffin at the center could make it hard to play the former Defensive Player of the Year.
