AUGUST 8: The Sixers have officially signed Henry to his two-way deal, the team announced today in a press release.
The 6’6″ junior forward was named to the 2020/21 All-Defensive Team and 2020/21 All-Big Ten Third Team. He had a breakout final collegiate season, averaging career highs in points (15.4), rebounds (5.6), assists (3.6) and steals (1.3) over 28 games, including 26 starts.
Henry, 21, holds a career NCAA shooting line of .493/.333/.762. His three-point shooting took a dip in his final season with the Spartans, however, as he converted just 29.6% of his 2.9 long-range attempts per night. He is listed fourth on ESPN’s ranking of undrafted NBA prospects.
The Sixers have had an active draft night. They selected Tennessee guard Jaden Springer in the first round, plus 6’11” Adriatic League forward Filip Petrusev and Western Kentucky center Charles Bassey in the second round.
All free agent contracts, including for two-way players, cannot be officially signed until the new league year officially starts.
