The Milwaukee Bucks have exercised their options to extend the contracts of both Brandon Knight and John Henson.

Knight joined the Bucks from the Detroit Pistons in the summer and his new team have confirmed the decision to pick up the fourth-year option.

The 21-year-old averaged 13.1 points per game during his two years with the Pistons after being selected with the eighth pick in the 2011 draft.

Henson, who boasted game averages of 6 points and 4.7 rebounds during his rookie season, has seen his third-year option exercised by Milwaukee.

The Bucks begin their season against the New York Knicks next Wednesday.
