The Mad Ants have acquired highly touted forward Terrance Henry from Maine as part of a three-player trade today.
The Mad Ants also got the rights to guard Xavier Silas, while giving up rookie Romero Osby.
Henry was the 10th overall pick in Friday's D-League draft, after an accomplished career at Mississippi. He averaged 12.3 points and 4.5 rebounds per game as a senior in 2011-12, and he was a second-team all-SEC selection.
He played in the NBA's Summer League with Memphis, then went on to play in France last season and average 10.9 points and 4.4 rebounds for Hermine Nantes Atlanique.
“We’re really excited about bringing Henry on board,” Mad Ants president Jeff Potter said. “He’s a tough player and will help us solidify our presence under the basket this season.”
Silas, who played at Northern Illinois, averaged 21.7 points and 4.6 rebounds per game during his senior year, earning a spot on the all-MAC first team in 2011. Silas appeared in 40 games for the Red Claws during the 2011-12 season, averaging 9.8 points and 2.9 rebounds per game before getting called to the Philadelphia 76ers.
He returned to the Red Claws last season and averaged 12 points, 3.2 rebounds and three assists per game.
Osby, who was selected by the Orlando Magic in the second round of the most recent NBA draft, is coming off his senior season at Oklahoma. The forward averaged 16 points, 7.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists.
The Mad Ants open training camp Thursday.
