This seems to be the week of John Henson news. First, the latest ESPN mock draft had Henson going to the Pistons with the No. 9 pick. Next, Vincent Goodwill at the Detroit News wrote a column talking about Henson being a match for what the Pistons are looking for.
The latest Henson-Detroit lovefest is from ESPN analyst David Thorpe. In a new column (Insider) examining draft prospects of interest to various teams, Thorpe calls Henson and Detroit a "perfect fit."
My guess is he will end up being a solid shooter and someone who will be able to score consistently inside. The nice thing about Henson is that he does not have to be a big-time scorer to be a positive contributor for the Pistons. But he has the potential to be a legit 16-point, 10-rebound guy while also routinely being among the league leaders in blocks. He's 21 with an 18-year-old's body.
In the same article he puts the following players into separate tiers in how they match up with the Pistons:
Kind of fits
Do you agree or disagree with his assessments? Who is the real "perfect fit" for the Pistons that could be available at No. 9?
