I'm not 100% sure if Henderson is the starting SG of the future for the Bobcats (ideally you'd like to pair someone like Wiggins with Kemba and MKG), but I fully believe that he is capable of 18+ ppg on 47% shooting from the field and good defense (although his team defense has been atrocious this season -- more to do with the lack of coaching and defensive players around him imo as his individual defense is good and effort isn't lacking). The thing that I'd really like to see improvement in from Hendo is his ability to create plays for others. Some friends and I always joke around and call him Baby Kobe. Obviously he isn't close to Kobe, but he has a lot of refined moves that Kobe uses. Hendo is a fantastic mid range shooter (one of the best in the NBA), he's good around the basket, has been getting to the FT line lately, and has a nice post game. I honestly see no reason why he cannot keep this up and average 18-20 ppg on good shooting numbers. The tools are there, the hard work and dedication is there, and the the flashes are there.
I'd like to see him back at 3/18 if possible, but it of course depends completely on the market out there. Just don't overpay him.
