Most draft boards had him going higher than 14th, but in a draft with fair amount of surprises, it looks like Henson has slipped through the cracks to be drafted by the Bucks. There had been some concerns about his strength, but anyone who has watched him improve at Carolina over the last three years would know not to worry. As it is, he'll join a young team in need of some more interior defense, where he'll be able to contribute right away.

He'll also join below Roy Williams project Drew Gooden, a ten year veteran of the NBA. He should be able to assist Henson with is professional transition. All and all, a good pick for Milwaukee.
