Sonics coach Bob Hill has named Robert Swift his starting center for the Nov. 1 opener against Portland.
Swift has drawn praise from Hill for his smart play and rebounding. It was enough to replace last year's starter, Johan Petro, who is averaging more fouls (2.8) than points (2.7) in exhibition play. In Monday's win over Phoenix, Petro was called for three fouls in eight minutes and was scoreless.
