MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee Bucks selected North Carolina power forward John Henson with the No. 14 overall pick in the NBA draft.

The 6-foot-11, 220-pound Henson averaged 13.7 points, 9.9 rebounds and 2.9 blocked shots per game as a junior last season.

Bucks general manager John Hammond moved to address the team’s biggest need the day before the draft, making a deal with the Houston Rockets to acquire veteran center veteran center Samuel Dalembert.

The Bucks and Rockets swapped first-round picks – dropping Milwaukee down from No. 12 to No. 14 overall on Thursday night and Milwaukee sent guard Shaun Livingston and forwards Jon Brockman and Jon Leuer. Milwaukee also got a future second round pick and cash considerations from Houston.
