HoopsHype John Henson rumors

April 6, 2014 Updates

The Bucks set a franchise record for futility this season, though they aren't dwelling on their failures. With its 102-98 loss to the Toronto Raptors on Saturday night, Milwaukee established a dubious club record with its 63rd loss. It sealed the team's fate as the biggest loser in the franchise's 45-year history. "I didn't know that," second-year forward John Henson said. "That's not something you want to be associated with."

What's the price? A young player who can help contribute to the team right now -- especially someone who can give them some much-needed depth on their front line. They'd love to get their hands on Kevin Love. But the Wolves would want much more than Barnes. The Pistons' Greg Monroe, the Sixers' Thaddeus Young, the Cavs' Tristan Thompson, the Nuggets Kenneth Faried, the Bucks' John Henson and the Raptors' Amir Johnson all intrigue the Warriors. Whether any of those teams are willing to give up that much to acquire Barnes remains to be seen. ESPN.com

Henson – the second-year forward who has had to scrape for his own minutes amid the newness, despite his strong summer in Las Vegas – said he has tried to calm Sanders, whose emotions sometimes outstrip his maturity. “I talk to Larry, because he’s one of my best friends on the team,” Henson said late Saturday. “I told him, ‘You’re going to close 90 percent of our games.’ He’s just frustrated right now.” NBA.com

There was some website chatter that Bucks forward John Henson and Larry Drew II, the son of Bucks coach Larry Drew, didn’t exactly see eye to eye after Drew bolted North Carolina for UCLA. Henson denied there’s ever been any rift between them. “Coach Drew’s son is a great dude,” Henson said. “Larry is a good player; he’s working out for the draft now. I try to keep up with him because he played with us (at North Carolina). “It (the transfer to UCLA) was best for him and his family. That’s how it is. He obviously played great last season at UCLA, so he made the right decision. I hope the best for him. He’s a friend of mine.” Racine Journal-Times

Ellis just missed a driving layup with Harris draped on him at the buzzer and the Hawks could celebrate the start of a six-game road trip. Following the game, Sanders grabbed Zaza Pachulia from behind as the team’s came together at midcourt. The Bucks were upset after Pachulia was called for a Flagrant Foul I earlier in the fourth quarter on John Henson. Pachulia would not discuss the post-game issue other than to say, “They are mad because they lost.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Yet amid all of those talks, sources say, Jennings has moved alongside Larry Sanders and John Henson on the Bucks’ list of near-untouchables. This is despite Jennings’ widely presumed desire to leave Milwaukee in free agency this summer after failing to seal a contract extension in October like fellow point guards Jrue Holiday, Steph Curry and Ty Lawson and then changing agents earlier this month.
