He adhered too a strict daily workout program, one that clearly showed his dedication and commitment to becoming a better basketball player. “I would wake up at 7 a.m., get breakfast and then lift weights,’’ said the, yes, still affable Henson. “I did that just because I could to go sleep earlier at night. Sleep actually helps you put on weight. I would go to bed usually around 9, 10 o’clock. That’s unusual, but at the same time, I had a routine. I wanted to put on 15 pounds and I did, so it worked.’’ Henson played his first two seasons with the Bucks at around 216 pounds -- anorexic by NBA big man standards. He repeatedly got thrown around under the basket like a rag doll by opponents who often outweighed by by at least 50 pounds. Racine Journal-Times

Still another Bucks player who could be wearing a new uniform next season is beleaguered center Larry Sanders, who has been saddled by a spate of off-court issues. Sanders will be entering the first of a fully-guaranteed four-year, $44 million contract next season, making him virtually untradeable. However, some team may be enticed to take on Sanders’ issues and hefty contract if perhaps Ilyasova, Henson or Knight was part of a trade package. Racine Journal-Times

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
