HoopsHype John Henson rumors


June 23, 2013 Updates

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.

Just take a look at the power forwards in the Central Division, where the Bucks reside. Chicago’s Carlos Boozer tips the scales at 258. Detroit’s Greg Monroe weighs 250. Chicago’s Joakim Noah is 232, Cleveland’s Tristan Thompson is 227 and Indiana’s Davis West is 250. Still, Henson doesn’t consider his weight to be an issue. “It’s not about weight, it’s about getting stronger,” said Henson, the 14th overall pick in the 2012 draft. “I’m holding my own down there (in the paint). So, nah, I’m (not concerned). “As I get older, I’m sure I’ll put on weight.”’ Racine Journal-Times

According to league sources, the Warriors talked to Milwaukee about swapping picks before the Bucks' trade with Houston. The Bucks were said to be considering moving up to secure one of the big men they like. North Carolina products, John Henson and Tyler Zeller, who may not have been available at No. 12, which may be why Milwaukee settled for Dalembert. San Jose Mercury-News

Warriors have also talked with Milwaukee Bucks about moving down to the 12th slot. The Bucks are looking to move up to secure one of the big men they like (John Henson, Tyler Zeller). If Thursday, Milwaukee believes Henson and Zeller will be gone (leaving them stuck with less-ready Meyers Leonard or Jared Sullinger and his back concerns), Bucks GM John Hammond may take the bait. Golden State could get Luc Mbah a Moute in return or even get Ekpe Udoh back. I’ve got to think Mark Jackson would prefer Ekpe Udoh. He had Ekpe playing his best ball before the Warriors (reluctantly) traded him to Milwaukee. Contra Costa Times
