NBA Draft 2012: John Henson Remains Likely Pick For Pistons, According To Mock Draft

Last week, DraftExpress said that North Carolina big man John Henson was a likely target for the Detroit Pistons in the upcoming NBA Draft.

This week, that prediction stands.

There is consensus forming around the narrative that the Pistons will (or at least should) draft a post player in this year's draft. DraftExpress is convinced it's Henson, while CBSSports.com thinks that the Pistons will take Illinois 7-footer Meyers Leonard.

According to DraftExpress, the lottery will be chock full of big men: No. 1 (Anthony Davis), No. 2 (Thomas Robinson), No. 5 (Andre Drummond), No. 6 (Jared Sullinger) and No. 9 -- whoever the Pistons take.

Henson, a 6-11, 220-pound forward, averaged 13.7 points, 9.9 rebounds and 2.9 blocks last season, and did so in less than 30 minutes per game. He played three seasons at UNC.
