Andre Drummond and Anthony Davis have some experience of playing together for Team USA but they have never been on the same team for an extended period of time.

The Los Angeles Lakers head coach Frank Vogel talked about how he sees the two bigs adjusting to playing together ahead of Thursday’s game against the Dallas Mavericks.

“I think that stuff takes time. It’s going to happen mostly in games for us, unfortunately,” Vogel said. “There’s going to be some speed bumps along the way. We expect that.

But I think having a little bit of a relationship with USA Basketball and AD playing with Dwight [Howard] and JaVale [McGee] last year in our system will make him very familiar to Andre’s role.

“Obviously Andre will have to get used to playing alongside AD in our system. It’s just one of those things it’s going to take time. You have two great players that we’ll figure it out on the fly.”
