Currently, it looks like we won’t have a first round draft pick. But, things could change. The Warriors might get unlucky in the lottery, or the Jazz could always make a trade. With this in mind, I’m wondering what Jazz fans think of North Carolina’s John Henson. He’s a very athletic 6′11 power forward, with a 7′4 wingspan. He’s known for being a tremendous shot blocker (about 3 per game), and rebounder (around 10 a game). He reminds me a little bit of a slimmer version of OKC’s Ibaka. Like Favors, I think he has a chance to be a game changer defensively, and I love the idea of the two playing alongside one another. Obviously, right now, we are loaded in our frontcourt, but if the Jazz end up dealing either Jefferson or Millsap this summer, we will want a fourth big.
Personally, I love the idea of having two extremely long, defensive minded big men on the court at the same time (Favors at center, and Henson at power forward). A four man frontcourt of Favors, Henson, Kanter, and either Jefferson OR Millsap, is an exciting prospect.
I’m just wondering what Jazz fans think of John Henson?
