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

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).
