Gerald Henderson remains one of the most notable free agents left on the market. The Charlotte Bobcats reportedly are remaining in contact with their guard, but are not close to meeting Henderson’s demands.
Reports state that Henderson wants up to $8 million on his next contract. Henderson has been a legitimate 15 point scorer the past two seasons, but there’s uncertainty about his durability and spotty three-point shooting. The Bobcats can’t afford to have a lucrative, long-term contract backfire on them with such a young roster.
It’s feasible to believe that a resolution will come soon, but what will it be? Henderson can still sign his $4.5 million qualifying offer and become an unrestricted free agent next season. He could elect to take long-term security for whatever contract the Bobcats are offering. There’s also a grey area in between that could result in a short-term contract that allows Henderson to become a free agent sooner. If a team comes forward with a reasonable sign-and-trade offer, then Henderson could take his ticket out of Charlotte immediately.
