John Henson on the block

The Cavaliers are showcasing veteran big man John Henson with the hope of trading him. And now they have an opportunity to do the same thing with Brandon Knight because of Kevin Porter Jr.’s knee injury. The Cavs want to move Henson, who is 29 and one of several veterans on an expiring contract, but until a knee injury to Larry Nance Jr. last week didn’t have enough playing time to really show what he can do. He needs it because he missed most of last season with a broken wrist, and a big chunk of time this year for various injuries.

Say this for the Milwaukee Bucks, they are a persistent bunch. According to sources, the Bucks are still actively trying to trade veteran centers Greg Monroe and John Henson, two players who have seen their roles with the team diminish. Monroe started 67 games for the Bucks after he signed with them two seasons ago before being relegated to the bench for what Bucks coach Jason Kidd said was an attempt to bolster the team’s off-the-bench scoring. Monroe hasn’t started a single game since and been the subject of constant trade rumors.

NBA star Giannis Antetokounmpo was in Greece for a meeting with the country’s prime minister Thursday and a special ceremony to bestow Greek citizenship on his mother Veronica and younger brother Alex. Antetokounmpo, who led the Milwaukee Bucks to the NBA championship in July, attended the ceremony at the official residence of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis. The 26-year-old Antetokounmpo was born in Athens, the son of Nigerian immigrants. He was granted Greek citizenship in 2013, allowing him to travel to the United States and join the Bucks later that year.
“We always felt Greek, but now we have an official stamp and we are happy,” Antetokounmpo told reporters after the ceremony. “Alex and my mom are Greek citizens now.” Antetokounmpo also traveled to Greece in August with his brother Thanassis, carrying the Larry O’Brien NBA championship trophy. He took the trophy to the ancient Acropolis in Athens to celebrate with members of his family.
