Gerald Henderson Re-Signs With Bobcats For 3 Years, $18 Million


The Bobcats’ longest-tenured player agreed to a three-year, $18 million deal with the team on Friday. According to Yahoo, Henderson had an offer for about $7 million per season, but turned that down for a player option on the third season: “Restricted free-agent guard Gerald Henderson is finalizing an agreement on a three-year, $18 million contract extension with the Charlotte Bobcats, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. Henderson will hold a player option in the third year, sources said. The re-signing of Henderson – one of the most consistent and talented players for the fledgling franchise – was the top priority for the franchise to secure for new coach Steve Clifford. After details are ironed out over the weekend, an agreement is expected to be signed early next week, league sources said. Henderson turned down more lucrative money from Charlotte to secure the player option on the third year of the deal, sources said. He could’ve had $7 million per season in this deal, but would’ve had to lock into three years without the player option in 2015-’16 that could get Henderson into free agency a year sooner, sources said.”

    As a native of NC, I’m going to just start calling them the Hornets now. Bobcats never did sound right. Nice move by the Hornets.

  • spit hot fiyah

    was it really? watching the bobcats was not a priority for me last season, but when i did watch them he did alright. the guy i really like though is jeff taylor who might be held back by henderson sticking around . thoughts?

  • MUBWAR

    wow derozan got 40 millions for the same numbers. fire your agent dude.

  • KingBenjamin

    Honestly, they should have gave up on Henderson awhile ago and drafted McLemore when they had the chance, they could have paired him up with Kemba Walker, that would have been a nice duo in the near future.

  • Ishmael Jenkins

    Should have drafted McLemore, but they didn’t and Henderson is solid. They could do a lot worse than him at the 2.

  • Ishmael Jenkins

    Taylor is more of a small forward than two guard to me. Henderson is solid. 18 points on 45% shooting per 36 minutes. Athletic. Still young enough to learn good habits. If the new coach wanted to make sure he stayed, he must have an idea of how to help him improve.

  • Nathan Shane Long

    bobcats sleeper playoff team Cody Zeller was the top rookie in Vegas summer league play showing that he is legit him alongside Al Jefferson will be great Kemba will be improved And Jeff Taylor was a highlight reel in Las Vegas

  • BugEyes

    He is a good defender and a great shooter, maybe a more athletic raja bell

  • Ishmael Jenkins

    Heat, Bulls, Pacers, Nets, Knicks, Cavs, Wizards. They’d be lucky to get in at 8 behind those teams.

  • Nathan Shane Long

    henderson staying put them over the wizards,raptors,pistons

  • brad09′

    u think henderson is as good as derozan or in the same ball park?

  • brad09′

    this is the worst prediction i have seen in years, let me know how that goes

  • brad09′

    could you? name 6 starting shooting guards that are worse ill wait

  • MUBWAR

    in the same ball park. derozan averaged a few more points but that was due to the usage rate more than anything

  • Ishmael Jenkins

    Really? lol.
    MarShon Brooks or Courtney Lee (one has to start for Boston)
    DeShawn Stevenson in Atlanta (only shooting guard on their roster)
    Rodney Stuckey in Detroit
    Tony Allen in Memphis
    Alexey Shved or Shabazz Muhammad in Minnesota
    Thabo Sefolosha in OKC
    Evan Turner in Philly
    Shannon Brown in Phoenix
    Wesley Matthews in Portland
    Gordon Hayward in Utah

    His numbers last season were better than all of those guys.

  • Ishmael Jenkins

    No, it doesn’t put them over the Wizards on paper. Wall, Beal, Ariza, Nene, Okafor…better starting 5 than Kemba, Henderson, MKG, Zeller and Jefferson. Charlotte has to prove something before they deserve to be put ahead of Washington. Washington had a 24-25 record with Wall playing. 15-7 record with Wall, Beal and Nene.

  • Nathan Shane Long

    all that wizards with wall records stuff mean nothing you know that right? wall has had no impact on that franchise right also you do that Otto Porter Jr. will be their starting SF dummy also NENE is washed up and thought about retirement Emeka Okafor is trash like he was in Charlotte and Trevor Ariza aint been worth a damn since leaving the Lakers

  • spit hot fiyah

    gordon hayward is legit, i would take him over henderson. kevin martin starts in minnesota, and probably bledsoe in phx (brown is not for sure) allen has been one of the best defenders in the league for years now, no way henderson is better than him.

  • Ishmael Jenkins

    Henderson had a better season than Hayward last season. Forgot about Martin. Bledsoe isn’t a true 2. Tony Allen is a defender but can’t score. I’ll take Henderson over him overall.

  • Ishmael Jenkins

    Records don’t mean anything…what drug are you on? Okafor is a double double machine…how is that trash? You just don’t watch basketball, do you? Find another sport. This isn’t the one for you.

  • spit hot fiyah

    alright, i just happen to like hayward, going forward i would take him.

    bledsoe is a true point either, and he will be the de facto 2 playing next to dragic.

    tony allen can’t shoot, but he can get out on the break and slash. overall i would take him easily, his defense in itself puts him over the top imo

    you could throw in whoever starts for the lakers until kobe comes back, because whoever that is he is not better than henderson.

    and oladipo hasn’t played a game yet, so i guess henderson over him. and sacramento seems to have about 54,378 shooting guards and they are all meh

  • Ishmael Jenkins

    Heard Dragic will be the one to play off the ball if they insert Bledsoe into the starting lineup.

    Depends on what you like to see. I’ll take Henderson who can score and has the potential to be a solid defender over Allen.

    I didn’t even think about the Lakers 2s since Kobe’s hurt.

  • spit hot fiyah

    really? i wouldn’t give bledsoe any ballhandling responsibilities.
    but i guess they are tanking their heads off so why not

  • spit hot fiyah

    denver btw, with igoudala gone they have a major whole at the 2. it’s randy foye or nate rob unless in forgetting someone. chandlers is a 3 imo

  • Ishmael Jenkins

    Probably Foye.

  • Ishmael Jenkins

    I’m not sure if people know what he’s capable of because of the role he played in LA. Never really a lot of time to develop playing behind Chris. We saw the athleticism and defensive ability. Now we’ll get to see what he can really do.

  • TR

    Tony Allen is a pretty average/below average slasher to me.

  • RKJ92

    You have to be the worst commentator I have ever seen on this site.. and that is saying a lot..

  • Nathan Shane Long

    what was Washington record John Wall first 2 seasons when he was Healthy? answer that troll as far as Okafor in concerned 2nd overall pick in the draft that has been IRRELEVANT his whole career and has put up the same mediocre “double-double” stats 12ppg and 10 rpg

  • Nathan Shane Long

    really why you attacking me are you finally done TROLLING ON THE LUIS SCOLA THREAD YOU STUPID CUNT

  • RKJ92

    zzzzzz

  • Ishmael Jenkins

    You’re easily one of the dumbest dudes here.

  • Nathan Shane Long

    your such a low-rate troll

  • Nate

    Anyone that takes Henderson over Allen is a straight up fool. What he does on offense doesn’t matter. All you fools see is stats. PPG and FG%. Allen is 1st team all defense. THAT MEANS TOP FIVE DEFENSIVE PLAYER.

  • Nate

    “How was Washington the first two years without wall”
    Apparently this fool has never heard of player improvement. You know the more they play the better they get.

  • Ishmael Jenkins

    You’re a straight up fool for thinking that your opinion is the most important opinion and anyone who disagrees is a fool. You’re also a fool for thinking that what you value most is more important or better than what someone else values and if someone values something else more, they’re a fool.

  • Mars

    Carolina loves this guy. I’m glad they’re starting to take advantage of players home groomed players. Now lets see if these Hornets can make some noise with a decent- young core of good players. Kemba, MKG, Henderson, Jefferson, Zeller…Biyombo, Taylor, Adrian, Gordon, Haywood… Losing Muellens hurt tho
