Bucks Intrigued By Henson's Potential In Small Ball Lineups
The Bucks envision John Henson as a power forward capable of playing center in certain situations.
"From my standpoint, I look at him as being able to play a 4 (power forward) and some 5 (center). You don't have that many traditional back-to-the-basket centers in the NBA,” Bucks director of scouting Billy McKinney said after Henson's private workout on Tuesday. "He would have trouble with guys like (Indiana center) Roy Hibbert who have the size. But when you look at teams putting smaller lineups on the floor, he could play the center position, because he also has the ability to move his feet as a defensive player."
Henson may be off the board when Milwaukee selects at No. 12.
"John's individual workout is probably the best we've had this year in our draft workouts," McKinney added. "Obviously, we like him, but he's not going to be there at 12 when we select. It's a matter of whether it's practical for us to move up or the teams ahead of us would value him as much as we would.”
