Charlotte, N.C. — Former Duke University guard Gerald Henderson has re-signed with the Charlotte Bobcats, president of basketball operations Rod Higgins announced Tuesday.
Henderson averaged career highs in points (15.5) and assists (2.6) in 68 games with the Bobcats in 2012-13. He played just over 31 minutes per game. The terms of Henderson's deal were not released.
“We are incredibly pleased that Gerald will remain a part of our team,” Higgins said in a statement. “He is a player that we consider an important piece of our core. He has shown significant improvement over the past two seasons and we are confident that he will continue to play a key role for our team.”
Henderson concluded the 2012-13 campaign with 24 straight double-figure scoring games, recording the longest streak of his career and the longest by a Bobcats player since the 2010-11 season. Over the final 21 games of the season, he averaged 23.9 points on .475 shooting and .855 free-throw shooting, to go with 4.0 rebounds and 3.7 assists.
Henderson was selected 12th overall by the Bobcats in the 2009 NBA Draft.
