Henson disappointed in the Chicago pre-draft combine with below-average numbers in the athletic portion of the drills, but it's his size and game that would help the Warriors immensely. At 6-10 with a standing reach wingspan of 7-5, we understand why he was such a great defensive player and shot-blocking presence for UNC. He also has large but soft hands, helping him project as a strong rebounder and someone who can make tough catches off dives after ball screens. With Boguts' propensity for injury, getting Henson gives the Warriors some shot-blocking insurance, but I'd be excited to play them together. The Warriors would see a huge jump in their poor shot-blocking numbers when those two are in the game together. I have no problem ignoring Henson's poor athletic numbers -- his body type suggests that he is years away from reaching his athletic potential. He is 21 with a 16-year-old's body now, but it will not always be that way. In a year or two, I wouldn't be surprised to see Henson add 20 pounds and perhaps even an inch or two of height while also gaining a lot more power and explosiveness (think Paul George).

Warriors' best fit according to David Thorpe, who has consistently been a fan of Henson. He also mentions Barnes, who probably won't be available. Lillard, Waiters, and Sullinger are his "kind of fits".
