Yeah I know - seems goofy to me too but Sacto used him there last year when Miller was hurt and apprently they're going to do it again. It'll be for a month so it seems valid for a position change - won't just be a day or two.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Kings center Brad Miller will miss at least four weeks with an injured left foot, adding the biggest problem yet to Sacramento's early season woes.

Forwards Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Kenny Thomas and Maurice Taylor will team up to replace Miller for the Kings. The 6-9 Abdur-Rahim, who filled in at center last season when Miller missed three games with a thumb injury, seemed confident in his ability to defend the NBA's tallest players.

"It's not like it's something I haven't done before," Abdur-Rahim said. "It's different against bigger guys. I'll have to use the advantages I might have and just try to keep them off the glass."

Abdur-Rahim might benefit from the injury in several ways. The longtime starter came off the bench last season in deference to Thomas, who also plays better when he's in the starting lineup.

"Obviously I feel better starting, going out and getting warmed up to play that way," Abdur-Rahim said. "The main point is getting off to a good start."

Sorry - ABA. Had it on the one I deleted - if an admin wants to add that to the title, feel free.

Don't believe I can - I think I'm not listed as a commish any more. At least the Commish tools doesn't show up for me on that league page like it does on the KL (which is fine - I'd just as soon not be an ABA commish).
