Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN brought word of a trade that will lead to the Nets getting rid of Tyler Zeller in exchange for the aforementioned draft pick.
Yesterday afternoon, they would acquire him from the Brooklyn Nets. However, this is only Maker's second year in the National Basketball Association and just needs more time to develop.
Zeller has started 33 games for the Nets this season, averaging 7.1 points on 54.6% shooting from the field to go along with 4.6 rebounds. Interestingly, Zeller and Henson were teammates at the University of North Carolina and had a lot of success playing alongside each other.
Considering that the Bucks are in Manhattan to play the New York Knicks on Tuesday and the Nets are in the midst of a four-game home stand, Zeller could join Milwaukee as soon as Tuesday provided the trade is completed in time. However, if the pick is not conveyed this year then it becomes an unprotected pick in 2020, according to Wojnarowski.
Henson finished out Sunday's game against the Brooklyn Nets and this doesn't sound like a significant issue, so he should be fine for Friday's matchup with the Miami Heat. But here's the thing: this probably benefits both teams. He holds career averages of 3.1 points, 1.2 rebounds and 0.6 assists in 12.3 minutes in 133 games played.
