Charlotte Bobcats Consider Trading Gerald Henderson

by July 11, 2013

Unable to reach a deal with restricted free agent guard Gerald Henderson, the Charlotte Bobcats are reportedly exploring sign-and-trade possibilities for the 12th pick in the 2009 NBA Draft. Per Yahoo! Sports: “The Bobcats and Henderson have remained far apart in extension talks and discussions moved away from a contract and toward a sign-and-trade scenario on Wednesday, league sources said. Henderson, 25, is one of the NBA’s emerging young shooting guards, but Charlotte has been reluctant to offer him a market value that could push into the $7.5 million to $8.5 million range, front-office sources said. Charlotte started pursuing free agent Monta Ellis earlier in the week, fearing it would struggle to come to terms with Henderson, sources said. Bobcats president Rod Higgins drafted Ellis with the Golden State Warriors and has remained fond of him.”
