Now he approaches restricted free-agency in July. Only once in his four seasons as a Bobcat has this franchise reached the playoffs. That’s a departure from the winning Henderson’s teams did in high school and at Duke. But, all things being equal, he says he’d like to remain a Bobcat and be part of the long-term solution. “I know one thing – the Bobcats have stuck with me,” Henderson said of free-agency. “So if we can work it out, (re- signing in Charlotte) would be a good thing.” Charlotte Observer

Bobcat rookie Jeff Taylor has played well this year, leading many to speculate on what the Bobcats will do with Gerald Henderson. The cats’ stance on Henderson is that they will re-sign him, but he continues to be doubt on how committed Charlotte is to that concept. The Bobcats opted to not extend both Henderson and Byron Mullens, mainly because the Bobcats want to have salary cap flexibility in July. That does not mean they don’t want to re-sign both players this summer, they are just keeping their options open. HoopsWorld

He articulated the usual "change the culture" mantra for a losing team. The burn rate for new, young, hyper-intense coaches is pretty high, and it's hard to keep pushing that hard before players start to tune you out. But these players didn't have a choice, given the record. "I knew the first day I met him that things were going to change," Henderson said. "Coach is just a different guy. He's not anything that NBA guys are used to. But for this particular group, he works well, in terms of just staying on everybody, keep holding everybody accountable. And we're a young group, too, so I think guys responded to him." NBA.com

It sounds like at least another week before Charlotte Bobcats captain Gerald Henderson will be well enough to start playing again. In an exclusive interview Tuesday with the Observer, Henderson said his sprained left foot is still sore and he hasn’t been cleared yet to run or jump on the basketball court. Charlotte Observer

“I’d say around a week. I’d have to be able to run and jump first and get a couple of practices in. To get myself in decent enough shape because I’ve missed some time,’’ Henderson told the Observer, after a session of shooting and ballhandling. Charlotte Observer
