The Warriors selected Damian Jones with the 30th overall pick in the 2016 draft.
As a rookie, the big man appeared in just 10 NBA games.
He also suited up for the Santa Cruz Warriors 31 times.
"He's got a year under his belt now and he's healthy. This is his first real season where he's starting fresh. I don't tell anybody where they rank on the pecking order and totem pole. You just gotta play.
"You never know how this stuff turns out. If a guy is good enough to play, we're gonna play him. And he is really good, but you got a lot of good guys at his same position, too."
Zaza Pachulia is the Warriors' starting center.
Behind him, it's JaVale McGee, David West, Kevon Looney, Jordan Bell and Jones.
Oh yeah -- and then there's that Draymond Green guy.
"The other thing that hurts all the centers is there's no four-man anymore," Kerr added. "David West used to be a four, now he's a five. Looney -- ten years ago would have been a four. Now he's a five.
"So as a result, we end up with six centers on a roster ... now you're either a five or you're a three. The four position has almost been eliminated from the NBA.
"Unless you're Draymond Green and you just play whatever the hell position you want to call it."
