  • Henry stands at 6’6 and plays shooting guard.
  • He can’t shoot.
  • He doesn’t have a very good handle
  • The bright side is that he’s only 20. Plus he’s athletic and  with his sizehas the potential to be a very good defender and rebounder
  • He can play with Vasquez to make up a back court composed of entirely ex-Grizzlies from the 2010 draft. Not many teams can say that.
