John Henson

PF North Carolina 6’10” 220 lbs 12/28/90



Henson is a bit of an enigma. He looks the part of a lottery pick with great length, athleticism, and nice offensive skills. While his perimeter game is still developing, it is not where it needs to be in order for Henson to special. For a player with so much ability to only play a minor role makes some skeptical of whether Henson will be an impact player.

Teams will fall in love with Henson’s length and athleticism and that really allows him to crash the boards, block shots, and run the court but he has not demonstrated the ability to take a game over. If he can answer that questions that will boost his stock, otherwise he will be a long line of finesse 4’s that some team will take a chance on in the first round.
