The Charlotte Bobcats have had a disturbing tendency over the years to part ways with key players with not much compensation – either via trade or free agency. Raymond Felton Tyson Chandler Stephen Jackson Gerald Wallace – they were four of the most important players on the Bobcats’ lone playoff team ever (in 2010). None of them are here anymore. Gerald Henderson is here however – the Bobcats held a press conference for him Monday after Henderson re-signed with the team. He’s guaranteed to be in Charlotte through the 2015 season but his third contract year can be voided at his option. That’s not a perfect situation but it beats the alternative. Henderson and Kemba Walker were the Bobcats’ two best players last season. They both will return and the team has added several other key pieces – most notably first-round pick Cody Zeller and big man Al Jefferson who was the most expensive free-agent acquisition in team history. Henderson spoke Monday of being “part of the problem” the last two seasons – meaning he signed his name to that combined 28-120 record (worst in the NBA the past two seasons) just like everyone else on those very forgettable squads. Now the shooting guard said he wants to be part of the solution. “Charlotte has become like a home to me” Henderson said. “… You go through anything tough it’s easy to kind of give up on it and say you want to move on…. But we need to find our way out of it.” Henderson who averaged a career-high 15.5 points last season and increased that to 23.9 points over the season’s final 21 games said he will continue to work to make himself a better 3-point shooter.
