Milwaukee Bucks pick up John Henson and Brandon Knight's options

Well the Milwaukee Bucks didn’t waste too much time thinking about picking up Brandon Knight’s fourth year team option.

According to Andrew Gruman on Twitter, the Bucks not only picked up Knight’s option, but forward John Henson’s option as well.

Knight hasn’t even played in one regular season game with the Milwaukee Bucks this season and they already picked up his option. That right there should give them enough time to put together a long term contract extension to keep him with the organization.

He will obviously start at point guard and should be the building block for this franchise moving forward. Knight even may see a little time at shooting guard in order to give Luke Ridnour a little playing time here and there.

Henson has looked great during the Summer league so it makes sense that the team picked up his option instead of letting him walk away next year. He’s a strong re-bounder and displayed his skulls during the Summer league.

This team does have a lot of work that needs to be done with not only their starting rotation, but their bench. It’s not a lost cause like the Charlotte Bobcats so consider this a work in progress. Excited to see Knight in a brand new uniform.

He should have a break out first year with this Milwaukee team.
