Higgins and Cho Ready To Do Business With Henderson

23 posts in this topic

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.

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?

The Bobcats are just going to wait out, or so it seems.

 

It's not a bad idea, you can do a sign and trade deal revolving around him at anytime and since the team can match any offer that he gets; it appears they are just going to play the waiting game to see if he comes down from his price.

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.

 

After seeing some games from the Summer League, I'd agree with you man. Jeff Taylor is ballin right now, plus my brother is a big Rip fan so that would all be awesome.

Taylor was good last year too in the summer league, then the regular season came around and.... not so much.

 

While I agree he could be good, we need to see him contribute in the regular season.  Right now he's just the Bobcats equivalent of the Panthers' training camp heroes we have each year.

i would disagree with that comparison.. Panther's TC heros go onto contribute NADA and are usually cut by the regular season..

 

last year Taylor averaged 6ppg 1ast 2 rebs

and at the end of the year he was 8ppg with %.400 from the 3pt line-- off the bench

 

Im not saying he's a world-beater and should be starting- but comparing him to Charley Martin, Kenneth Moore and Ryne Robinson.. thats just wrong

Not an exact comparison obviously.  I have no doubt he's solid off the bench, but as a starter, it's still too early.  Glad he's on our team though.

    • Scouting report: A player who arguably all season long was the best offensive threat in college basketball sits around the later top ten in almost all draft boards. Monk is easily compared to Jamal Crawford because of his aggressive shooting combined with the ability to score from anywhere. Monk shot a near 40 percent from three while shooting 82 percent from the free throw line in his first year at Kentucky. Monk averaged an SEC second best 19.8 points per game. Monk has a shooting skillset that is needed in the NBA but is hard to find. He has that unconscious shooting stroke which can be Curry like at times. What intrigues scouts the most about Monk is that he is not just a shooter, he plays above the rim and he can guard either the one or the two. Although Monk showed off his high-flying display all year long at Kentucky, it was his defense that stood out the most. His run and gun mentality allows him to jump passing lanes and play in your face defense on almost every possession forcing turnovers and fast break opportunities quite frequently. Monk is a dangerous transition guard who can score in a flurry. With the way that the NBA is going regarding athletic three point shooting guards, Monk would fit well with virtually every team in the NBA and could be used in multiple different lineups. Even though he is a shooter, Monk has the capability of running an offense and getting his teammates open.
