#14: John Henson
in the front court together, opposing teams will think twice about attacking the rim. Those two are going to send back moreComing into the postseason the Milwaukee Bucks had a clear need to address their front court situation. They replaced starting center Andrew Bogut when they traded the 12th overall pick in this draft to Houston for the 14th pick and Samuel Dalembert. They shored the front court up even more by using that 14th pick to draft University of North Carolina power forward John Henson.
Henson was known for his ability to stretch the floor on the offensive end and his shot-blocking on the defensive end, and spent much of the time between the end of the school year and the run-up to the draft working with NBA great John Lucas down in Houston. Lucas couldn’t say enough about his game, and said the only thing holding Henson back was his desire to own the offensive end of the court.
If Bucks head coach Scott Skiles can instill confidence in Henson, he could prove to be a force to be reckoned with for years to come in Milwaukee. With Dalmebert and Henson in the front court together, opposing teams will think twice about attacking the rim. Those two are going to send back more than their share of shots. than their share of shots.
