While the Bucks practiced in Madison all week, an extension is reportedly just about done between the team and power forward John Henson. After months of contract talk, the deal will be worth four years and around $45 million but as much as $48 million, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein. J-Hook will officially be part of the Bucks’ young nucleus for years to come.

Last season, he averaged 7.0 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 2.0 blocks in 18.3 minutes per game. His PER of 18.1 is what stands out along with his ability to defend multiple positions. Henson averaged the most blocks per 36 minutes last season in the NBA largely due to his huge wingspan of 7’6″, a huge part of the Bucks’ defense as we explained yesterday.

Henson was drafted by the Bucks in the first round in 2012. He figures to be a rotation player coming off the bench, but he will be asked to play big minutes with this new contract extension.
