How Good Is Xavier Henry?
« on: February 11, 2013, 11:59:26 PM »
So I've been thinking about this guy as a Celtic. He's just buried on New Orleans bench, he's not much of a shooter, but is very good at getting to the hole, very good rebounder, high character guy, and high potential as a defensive stopper at the 2.

He never really had a chance in New Orleans after an underwhelming rookie season 2 years ago, and he seems like a guy who deserves a second look.

I thought he was a good shooter? Wasn't that his thing in college?

Too unrefined to help right now. He is a multi-year reclamation project.

He is the type of a player I'd like to try and get and give an opportunity to, if rebuilding.

Id forgotten that, so I went back and looked at his draft express profile, he was a good spot up shooter.
