A person with knowledge of the deal tells The Associated Press that the Bucks have locked up big man John Henson on a four-year extension worth $44 million. The contract was agreed upon Friday morning, Oct. 2, 2015, and could reach $48 million with incentives. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because an official announcement has not been made.

Bucks big man John Henson posted on his Instagram:


Henson just signed a four-year, $44 million extension. Though it doesn’t kick in for another year, I think he still could have afforded plenty of jewelry.

Obviously, Henson’s claims are uncorroborated, but racism is one of the few things that can trump someone’s desire to turn a profit.

Calls to the store were unanswered.
