Rick Bonnell: Higgins and Cho are scheduled to speak with Gerald Henderson's representatives today. Don't know that this phone contact is a big thing. Twitter @rick_bonnell

 

Here's to hoping that the two parties can agree to a contract extension soon.

I think it's important we lock him up.  If you don't, bringing in Jefferson seems like a complete waste.  I think Henderson is reasonable though, and seems to want to stick around here and play for us.

Wish we could get Monta, if we don't sign Hendo...but that probably won't happen either. :(

I want nothing to do with that short Ballhog that plays no defense.

 

Monta can't play we other PG and I don't want him fuging with Kemba's development.

 

I'd rather start Taylor and sign Rip Hamilton then over pay for Monta.

Ellis reminds me of the basketball of the late 90's to mid 2000's that was horrible. Steve Francis 2.0 is not fun to watch..id rather sign Harlod Miner..out of retirement.

So someone in the league will pay Hendo 8 mil?

Rip Hamelton was just waived....band aid to the lotto?

Update: just saw Koolkat make the Rip Hamelton suggestion..not ideal but one year guy..and creepy mask.

I don't have a problem with that but we have to stop this pattern of not getting nothing for drafted players.  Plus we would need a back-up for MKG in this scenario.

We have a qualifying offer in so I doubt Hendo just walks away. We will have an opportunity to match another team's offer or do a sign and trade.

I said this in another thread that Hendo needs to look at the history of Bobcats Drafted FA.

 

Nobody makes more money then they would have made here.

He is asking for almost twice of his QO which means he is more than willing to walk away from it if he receives his price tag.  If another team wants to go sign him for 8-9 a year, then we will probably end up either signing Monta Ellis or go get a stop gap SG that can fill the position for 1-2 years on the cheap.

 

If someone offers Hendo 6-7 a year.... we probably match it and keep him here.  Either way, I don't think the qualifying offer to him means we are guaranteed a starting shooting guard on the roster this season or getting anything in return for him if he does leave.  The stupidest thing we could do is to match someone offering what he wants....

 

Henderson would be stupid to come back to Charlotte for a "contract year" and think he is going to have better stats than last season with the additions of Zeller, Al Jefferson, & the maturation of MKG and Kemba.  He needs his long term deal this off season and he knows it.

Who was the guy who told me Hendo would receive more interest on the FA market than OJ Mayo?
