Terrance Henry is my sleeper in the second round. He had a solid four-year career at Ole Miss and in his senior season, Henry averaged 12.5 points and 4.3 rebounds a game. Henry shot 45% from the field and was an ALL-SEC second team selection. He was the only player in school history with 1,000 points and 100 blocks in his career. In his last five regular season games, Henry averaged 16.6 points a game, and in his last college game, he scored 21 points in a 96-93 loss to Illinois State in the first round of the 2012 NIT Tournament.
Henry is a legit 6’10” forward with freakishly long arms. Has super long strides when attacking the paint, he’s very agile and has a quick first step. He’s very athletic, which allows for him to play inside and out, as well as guard multiple positions. Henry has a great jab step, ability to take up space with his dribble and pull-up for a jumper. He’s a talented spot-up shooter and has good range for his size. He reminds me of a young Lamar Odom with his size and versatility; He can handle the rock and has very good shot blocking ability – averaged almost one block a game in his senior season. Against the better teams, Henry played even stronger basketball. He’s not a great rebounder for his size – needs to be more physical – but that’s an aspect of the game that can be easily developed. In the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, Henry played very well. He ranked number one of the top five prospects there, averaging 10 points and 5 rebounds a game.
Judging The Fit:
I like the versatility he can bring to the Knicks. Henry could be a late-bloomer, but he would give NY a young guy off the bench with height and ability to play and guard multiple positions. He didn’t have a workout with the Knicks (48th pick), but did with the Bucks (42nd pick), Hawks (43rd pick), 76ers (45th pick) and Wizards.
I might be reaching here, but Henry has been my sleeper for months now. Some boards do not have him getting drafted at all, but I think he will be gone by the time the Knicks pick at #48. If he’s there, it’s the right pick. Great value in the middle of the second round.
