I like him and Howard playing 30 mins at center with Davis playing the remaining 18.

I think it will be situational. For example, when they take on Jokic, I can see Howard playing more 5. When going small ball, AD playing more 5, etc.

They definitely need another big that can play at the 4. Maybe a stretch 4 that can knock down 3s. Melo could fit that bill, for example.
