MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee Bucks signed first-round draft pick John Henson yesterday to an NBA rookie-level contract. He gets a two-year deal with team options for two more years.
The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel says Henson will make one-point-eight million dollars this season – about $300,000 more than what the league slotted for his draft position at Number-14. And he’s expected to get around four-million in guaranteed money over his first two years. The 6-11 Henson averaged 10 points and eight rebounds in three seasons at North Carolina, and he’s the Tar Heels’ all-time leader in blocked shots per game with just over two-and-a-half.
Henson has been getting ready for the Bucks’ rookie-and-free-agent camp that begins tomorrow. He and second round pick Doron Lamb of Kentucky are expected to take part in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. The Bucks will play their first game there on Monday against New Orleans, and Lamb is also expected to be signed by then.
