Five games into the regular season, including only one loss, the Spurs cadre of big men continues to adjust to their roles in the frontcourt. Lone holdover LaMarcus Aldridge is averaging almost 19 points and 7 rebounds per contest, and despite looking out of sync at times, newcomer Pau Gasol recently broke through with a 20-point night in Miami.

Growing up in California, where he was raised in a Jehovah’s Witness household, Dedmon didn’t play organized basketball until his senior year at Lancaster High School. After walking on at Antelope Valley College, he was offered a scholarship to USC where his game continued to develop. Dedmon went undrafted in 2013, with stops in Oakland and Philadelphia before cracking the rotation in Orlando, where he left an impression on Spurs assistant James Borrego.
