Milwaukee Bucks big man John Henson has agreed to a four-year, $44 million extension, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Henson’s contract will take effect in the 2016–17 season, and could be worth $48 million with incentives, according to the report.

Henson, 24, averaged 7.0 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.0 blocks in just 18.3 minutes per game off the bench last season. He finished fifth in the league in blocks per contest.

In each of his three NBA seasons, the 6'11" power forward has incrementally raised his shooting percentage from 48% in his first year, 54% in his second and 57% last year.

The former two-time ACC Defensive Player of the Year was the No. 14 selection in the 2012 draft out of North Carolina.

The Bucks open the 2015–16 season on Oct. 28 at home against the New York Knicks.
