Gerald Henderson has signed a deal with the Charlotte Bobcats for $18 million over three years, the team’s second big deal signed in the same day.
The agreement was first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. Rotoworld breaks down the situation in comparison to the Bobcats’ other signing earlier today.
Considering Timofey Mozgov got a three-year, $14 million deal earlier today, this looks like a winner for Charlotte. Of course, that Mozgov deal might be the worst contract of the offseason. Henderson had himself a strong second half, averaging 18.9 points, 4.0 boards and 1.0 steals on 46.3 percent shooting in 35.9 minutes. He should have a similar role as far as minutes go, but Al Jefferson should command the ball, which suggests Hendo’s 12.6 shots per game will go down.
Henderson spent his first four seasons in the NBA with the Bobcats, starting in the most games in one year with 58 last season. In that season, the 6-foot-5, 215-pound shooting guard averaged 15.5 points and 3.1 rebounds per game. He shot 44.8 percent from the field and 79.2 percent from the free throw line.
