Bucks select Henson, Lamb in NBA Draft
NEWARK, NJ - The Milwaukee Bucks selected UNC junior John Henson with the 14th overall selection in the NBA Draft. In the second round, the Bucks took Kentucky sophomore Doron Lamb.
Henson, a 21-year-old power forward, averaged 14 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks per game as a junior in Chapel Hill. He has been described as an explosive jumper and superb defender, but he sometimes struggles to finish offensively around the rim.
"It was a great fit for me," Henson said. "I took a visit there and I absolutely loved it. It's a nice, small city."
Lamb, a 6'-5" shooting guard, is described as a tremendous shooter. He hit 47 percent of his three-point shots during his sophomore season.
With their only selection in the draft, the Minnesota Timberwolves selected Purdue's Robbie Hummel. The forward was often plagued by injuries during his time in West Lafayette.
