I hate this for the Bucks.  I would rather have Henson with two more years on his rookie contract than Ibaka for $12.35 million a season.  Ibaka's defense is overrated.  The only thing he really has on Henson is a mid-range jumper.

I agree but however do you agree how awesomely sick this would be for OKC should MIL bite hypothetically?

Definitely.

The only problem is that Stephenson/Henson throws off the team's spacing.  For a team that lives off getting to the FT line, not having a jump shooting PF and Stephenson's shaky shooting could complicate things.

But 35% on 3 threes a game.  He is shooting 45% on jumper, which is higher than I expected, so maybe it could work.  Henson would still possibly cause a problem.  I am really high on him, but his lack of jumper in the scenario could hinder Westbrook/Durant/Stephenson getting to the rim.

I can tell you just from seeing a lot of him in college, he's capable.  It may just be a matter of getting the burn and confidence.  I'll actually go out on a limb say he's got that jumper in his pocket.

I hope so.  I have been talking him up to all those Bucks fans that take him for granted/underapreciate him.

I see him as being possibly as good as Lamarcus Aldridge, but with a different skill set.

Skies the limit really.  Easily, EASE ZA LEE one of my favorite youngn's.  He's been highly touted forever, just easy to get somewhat lost in the shuffle as UNC keeps mass amounts of talent, to a lesser degree in his case of course. 

And this coming from a Duke fan, always loved his game. Deceptively strong and tenacious too as he use to get knocked for appearing slight of frame.

Do you think he can play center full time within the next couple seasons?

Yes, in the mold of a Davis or prospectively Nerlens.  Slighter guys who could play 5 based on length and athleticism and playing in this small ball league with no real dominant 5s and overall being quite based.  Like Davis I prefer him @4 though, because again I think he has that jumper in his pocket. 

off topic: but this is why Drummond/Embiid could be scary good, they have the size to go along with the type of agility/dexterity/athleticism Davis/Henson have.

Shaking things up a bit, I would love to see how this would unfold for OKC.
