Henson, Gordon speak; Zeller in town Tuesday

North Carolina forward John Henson continues to say all the right things if he wants to entice the Kings to use the fifth overall pick on him in this month's NBA Draft.

*He's going to work hard to add strength after weighing 216 pounds at last week's NBA Draft Combine.

*He's willing to do all the dirty work (meaning he's not going to join the list of Kings that feel they need 15-plus shots a night).

*He knows DeMarcus Cousins the "the man" on the block and he's willing to play off him.

It still might be a reach to select Henson at five, but if Thomas Robinson is gone and so are small forwards Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Harrison Barnes, Henson becomes a legitimate option if the Kings are intent on adding a power forward.

Below is video of Henson and New Mexico forward Drew Gordon from their media time following the six-player workout.

Also here are the six players who will be at Tuesday's workout:

Tyler Zeller, Center, North Carolina
JaMychal Green, Forward, Alabama
Lazeric Jones, Guard, UCLA
Charlie Westbrook, Guard, South Dakota
Wendell McKines, Forward, New Mexico
William Buford, Guard, Ohio State.

Zeller is the player in the group who could be worthy of a first-round pick by the Kings. Five would be considered more a reach for Zeller than Henson.
