Gerald Henderson: Return to Charlotte Bobcats is official

Shooting guard Gerald Henderson confirmed by Twitter on Sunday that he has re-signed with the Charlotte Bobcats.

“IT”S OFFICIAL!!! … I am a Charlotte Bobcat again!” Henderson wrote on his confirmed Twitter account ( @GhJr09). “I am glad to be back and am ready for another season in the Queen City.”

Henderson, drafted 12th overall in 2009 by the Bobcats, became a restricted free agent at the start of this month. A knowledgeable source confirmed to the Observer on Friday that Henderson agreed to a three-year contract with a total value of $18 million. Henderson will have the option to terminate that contract after the 2014-15 season.

He accepted less money in return for that player option.

With Henderson returning, it appears the Bobcats have completed their major offseason transactions. During the free-agency period the Bobcats committed $41 million over the next three seasons on center Al Jefferson, a low-post scorer who last played for the Utah Jazz.

It is possible the Bobcats will add a third point guard and a sixth big man – likely each signed for the veteran minimum salary – before training camp begins in early October.
