Bucks make signing of Xavier Henry to training camp deal official

1 Comment

The Milwaukee Bucks already have 15 players under guaranteed contract, anyone they add to their training camp roster is a long shot to make the team. That said, the Bucks could use a little more depth on the wing.

Enter Xavier Henry. The Bucks made official on Monday what had been reported for weeks, Milwaukee is bringing Henry to training camp.

Henry was the No. 12 pick in the 2010 draft and had a world of athleticism but never really harnessed it into a dangerous weapon on the court. He started to show flashes with Mike D’Antoni’s Lakers, but a couple of knee injuries then a torn Achilles ended up being major setbacks.

Henry went to the Warriors camp last season then played nine games for Santa Clara in the D-League, where he averaged 15.6 points a game with a very efficient PER of 21.4. If he can show in camp that he is close to back to his Lakers form, he may be able to pique the interest of some NBA teams. Including the Bucks.
