Henderson Wants To Stay With Cats

15 posts in this topic

Rick Bonnell: Restricted FA-to-be Gerald Henderson said he'd "absolutely" prefer to stay a Bobcat, all else being equal. "Bobcats have stuck with me, so if we can work it out, that would be a good thing."Twitter @rick_bonnel

Hopefully the Cats feel the same way and re-sign Hendo, he has been amazing these past two months.

Maybe the light's finally gone off for him offensively???? He's been playing lights out lately.

Another thing, do you think Bis is turning the corner? He's been pretty impressive lately comparably. He's got a couple double double's a few 10-12 point games over the last two weeks.

He's averaging 8 points, 9 rebounds, 2 blks, 1 stl and 1 assist per game over the last three games. Shooting 56 percent from the floor and 64% from the FT line.

I'm 100% in if we can avoid the Wallace contract we handed out 6 years ago.

Not that he didn't deserve it, however - it just really hurt the team financially.

I wouldnt mind bring Hendo back, but its got to be at the right price. I honestly have no idea what kind of market there is for him around the league, if he had a reliable 3pt shot then I think some other team might splurge on an Aaron Afflalo type deal but playing on the bobcats probably hurts his value.

He is a restricted FA, so I could see him coming back on a 2 yr/ $12 mil deal or so if he cant find a long term deal somewhere

I've heard Detroit is interested in him but that's about it.

Based on the city and living conditions alone I would choose Charlotte over Detroit.

Gotta keep Hendo at a reasonable price. I do honestly believe that he can keep up the kind of play that he has been displaying of late. I think it is clear that he has been given the green light to score and be THAT guy. He has a smooth mid range game, post game, 3 pt shot is solid enough (not lights out by any stretch but when he shoots you know it can go in now), and the man is a good leader. I think pairing Kemba with Hendo for the future is a good look. Just need to add some good front court talent and I think we will be solid. Just my 2 cents

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.

I just looked at some numbers for the month of March, and Hendo is averaging the following...

20.2 points per game

4.2 rebounds per game

3 assists per game

I would say that's a pretty solid month.

    • I had always assumed she was dardaroarroar
    • elton simpson was monitored over a 9 year period (fbi claims there were breaks but at the least there were still years of monitoring) and at least $132,000 in cash was spent on one informant alone. here's the fbi's version in the immediate aftermath of the shooting:   Three hours before gunmen attacked an anti-Prophet Muhammad event in Garland, Texas on Sunday, the FBI sent a bulletin to local police with a photo of one of the shooters, Elton Simpson, noting that he was "interested in the event," FBI director James Comey said. At the time, the FBI had no reason to believe that Simpson intended to attack the event, Comey told reporters Thursday. Nor did the agency know that Simpson was already on his way there. Comey also said that he does not believe that the police officer who shot Simpson and the second gunman, Soofi Nadir, was aware of the bulletin. He went on to say that while the investigation of the Phoenix gunmen is far from complete, Comey believes the FBI acted appropriately. ..... Two weeks before the Garland event, which invited artists to draw illustrations of Muhammad, the FBI and Homeland Security warned law enforcement agencies across the country that it was at risk of being targeted by Islamic extremists. The advisory noted that supporters of ISIS and other terror groups had posted links to the contest on Twitter. Simpson was reading those posts, and communicated with an American in Somalia who'd called for attacking the event, investigators have said. The FBI then developed information that Simpson might be interested in traveling to Garland, Comey said. The Sunday bulletin followed. ..... The FBI now has hundreds of investigations of potential home grown extremists under way, with cases open in every state. "I know there are other Elton Simpsons out there," Comey said. Finding them, however, is a "very hard task," he said. Investigators can follow messages that are posted on public twitter accounts. But ISIS recruiters are steering people off Twitter into encrypted forums, which the government cannot see, Comey said. "Its the old going-dark problem, in living color," said Comey. He added: "We have hundreds working on it around the clock. But in almost every case of violence, someone saw something. A friend, a family member. Its more important than ever for people to speak up."     ^^^just a reminder for the bolded parts that a federal agent was in the car directly behind them as they opened their doors and began their short lived attack
    • Looks like it has potential. BvS was terrible. I will say the extended version was a better film but still not good. Suicide Squad was one of the worst films I've seen in a while.  That said of course I will waste my money and go see this. I hope they bring back Batman's more cunning qualities in future films. I got the sense that in BvS he was a what you see is what you get type of guy. You don't get the feeling that he has something up his sleeve at all times. Which was something Nolan/Bale had, almost Bond-esque.
