Did you think Gerald Henderson had likely played his last game as a Bobcat? I didn’t. The thought didn’t cross my mind until this week. Gerald Henderson might be moving on. Either as a restricted free agent, signing elsewhere because the Bobcats can’t or won’t match or in a sign and trade because the Bobcats don’t think he’s worth what some other team does.
It’s strange. I knew it was an option. Restricted free agents at the end of those rookie deals you have several options, 2 of which include the guy staying on your team though. Either he signs an extension, signs the qualifying offer and sticks around another year or he signs with another team. Another option, as with any free agent is the ol’ sign and trade. It looks like Hendo might get the last option.
I thought for sure the team this up coming season was going to be the same roster plus whoever they drafted and maybe some free agents to fill the end of the bench. Same starting lineup, unless there was a huge rookie added. Henderson and Kemba co-captains again. My mental picture is Henderson will always be a Bobcat. I guess I’m a little childish in that way. I didn’t understand why Alonzo Mourning would want to play anywhere but Charlotte when he left for Miami. I’m still sort of that way about beloved players.
