His upside is a Serge Ibaka/PF Deandre Jordan type who gets a lot of swats, but isn't the most positional first defender and who is limited offensively. His problem offensively probably comes down to feel, his footwork and hands aren't THAT bad, and he has hit midrange shots this year (though a poor FT% is a bad sign for his shooting). I've had a hunch Sac and Det could take him with a top 6 pick all year just because the plan would be that Cousins/Monroe are the offensive big, Henson is the rim protecting defensive one.

2. ORTG/DRTG ranks are connected in back and forth play and energy expenditure
3. RAPM/RPM is proven measuring regular season value, but not postseason

Well, his lack o bulk and strength is the biggest issue with him, imo. If he had Deandre Jordan's strength, he'd be the 2nd player picked. Physically, he's a lot like Camby - though probably an inch shorter. Great defensive rebounder and shot-blocker. Needs to work on his foul-shooting - it should be better. I think he has un-tapped offensive ability - he can fly from the foul-line to the basket, and he's improved his left hand.

As a Bucks fan, if the Kings take him at 5 I'll be very happy. As a NBA fan I feel like Henson shouldn't be a lottery pick and Sacramento could do better at 5. I say that about the Bucks tho because I'm hoping is already off the board some dumdum John isn't even tempted to waste our pick on him. Same with Tyler Zeller.

I think there's a good chance DET takes him; if not then of course it's Sully.

Tyreke, Cousins, Isiah Thomas, Kings have had decent success drafting recently. Jason Thompson was a reach but he's been a solid role player IMO. Jimmer at 10 was hard for any GM to pass up I'm sure. I wouldn't be overly optimistic if I were u because there is always that margin for error but #5 in this draft should be something exciting for u. Unless its Henson lol, then u have very right to be pissed
