Report: Bucks trying to move up in draft to pick North Carolina's John Henson

Wednesday June 27th, 2012

Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal-Times reported on Monday that the Milwaukee Bucks are trying to move up from the 12th pick in Thursday's NBA draft, with their eyes on two players: Connecticut center Andre Drummond and North Carolina forward John Henson.

Alex Kennedy of confirmed on Tuesday night that the Bucks are indeed trying to jump into the top 10, and sources told him that they have their eyes specifically on Henson.

Henson, a shot-blocking and rebounding wiz who needs to add a lot of weight, is projected by many (although not's Sam Amick) to be headed to the Detroit Pistons at No. 9, which means the Bucks would have to jump at least four spots.
