Vladimir Radmanovic claims it's time for him to ascend to the role as the Sonics' starting power forward. A potential season-ending injury to rookie power forward Nick Collison may give the Sonics no choice.

Of course, there's always the question of last year's starter, undrafted forward Reggie Evans, who remains the team's toughest rebounder.

That isn't the only position up for grabs. While chances are Jerome James will claim the starting center position, a healthy Calvin Booth and Vitaly Potapenko are just waiting for James to find his way back into coach Nate McMillan's dog house.
