News: Bucks center John Henson will likely see a more prominent role with the team in the 2015-16 season. Coach Jason Kidd could choose to play Henson next to recent-acquisition Greg Monroe at certain points next season.

"For me, I can play anybody," Kidd said of Henson's projected role, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "He'll find some time throughout the year. Henson and Monroe will be on the floor. Henson can play 5 (center) and 4 (power forward). We can go with two bigs or Henson can be out at the 5 with all smalls."

Last season, Henson averaged 7.0 points and 4.7 total rebounds per game, while shooting 56 percent from the field. He nearly averaged nine points per game in last season's playoffs while playing 25.5 minutes per game from the bench.

"What he did in the playoffs is potentially a statement in his young career," Bucks general manager Hammond said. "To defend the interior against the players Chicago has — (Joakim) Noah and (Pau) Gasol — was impressive.

"We think John is a great complement to Greg with his defensive ability and his ability as a premier shot-blocker in the league."
