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
