2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: John Henson


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-10, 210

School: North Carolina, Sophomore


Strengths:
  • Gifted athlete for his height
  • Ridiculous length helps him on the glass
  • 7-4 wingspan allows him to block/alter shots
  • Terrific timing as a shot blocker
  • Not afraid to try and dunk over defenders
  • Runs the floor well
  • Effective hook shot with either hand
  • Passer for a big guy
  • Has shown steady improvement and will continue to get better



    Weaknesses:
  • Very, very thin; must get stronger
  • Not at all pysical; gets pushed around in the paint
  • Face-up game is still raw and needs grooming
  • Awful free throw shooter
  • Sometimes tries to be too much of a finese finisher

    Summary: Because of his combination of length and athleticism for someone 6-10, Henson has been on the NBA radar since arriving at North Carolina. He is a very intriguing prospect, but his rail thin frame is a serious concern as he will have to try and battle grown men in the post on a nightly basis. If he declares for the 2011 NBA Draft, he still a likely mid-first-round pick based on potential alone. I just do not think he can be a regular contributor in the league until he adds some muscle or becomes a better outside shooter.

    Player Comparison: JaVale McGee/Hakim Warrick. This is a tough one since Henson is such a rare prospect. Henson is similar to McGee in their length, athleticism and shot blocking ability, but is about 40 pounds lighter than the Wizard center. That is where the Warrick comparison comes in because Warrick is also lengthy and athletic, but has a more similar frame and offensive ability as Henson.
