Locals show their stuff in Charlotte
Jun 5, 2009
Hometown hero Stephen Curry was the headliner on Thursday in Charlotte. Curry worked out under the watchful eye of Bobcat's head coach Larry Brown and his dad, former Charlotte Hornets star Dell Curry.
Brown loved what he saw from Curry but lamented that he knows there is no way Curry would be around when the Bobcats make their first round selection.
Area stars Gerald Henderson and Danny Green were also in Charlotte. Those two have a much bigger chance of landing in the Queen City. Most draft boards have Curry slated for the top ten, but there is a strong possibility the Bobcats could select Duke's Henderson with the 12th pick and also pick up Green in the second round.
Henderson may not be around either; his stock has been soaring of late. Teams love his strength and athleticism, as well as his ability to finish in transition.
Henderson said he would love to be selected higher than the Bobcats 12th slot, but he feels he is a great fit for Larry Brown's defensive approach. Henderson added, "I feel like coming from Duke, where defense is the most important thing that we do, I'll have a head start." Henderson is well ahead of the curve if he comes into the league with a defensive mindset.
The Bobcats have two second round choices, and that is where the versatile Green is most likely to land.
Former N.C. State guard Courtney Fells will show his talents to the Bobcats on Friday.
