It is said that his role is not defined because of a crowded frontcourt consisting of Kevin Love, Anderson Varejao, Timofey Mozgov and Tristan Thompson. The highly experienced Kaun is known for providing much-needed depth, which sometimes turns in a problem as the team has an experience of witnessing significant injuries throughout the regular season and the playoffs.
