Report: Gerald Henderson agrees to deal with the 76ers
The Philadelphia 76ers were able to land another guard to add to their rotation. According to Chris Haynes of Cleveland.com, they have come to terms with Gerald Henderson on a two-year, $18 million deal.
The 76ers, who have been the laughing stock of the NBA the past few years, have shown in this offseason that they wanted to bring in some veterans. Henderson averaged 8.7 points, 2.9 rebounds, and shot 35.3% from beyond the arc. His numbers might not be off the charts, but his ability to defend the wing and fill a role as a good rotational player for a young team carries value.
Henderson is not the only guard the 76ers have added during free agency. Philly also brought in Jerryd Bayless and they have rumored interest in Philadelphia native, Dion Waiters. Waiters may not be the best option for a team with so many young pieces because he is very ball-dominant and thrives on isolation scoring, but it still might happen.
The 76ers are very, very far from competing for an NBA championship or even a playoff spot, but adding some solid veteran pieces will help them be more competitive in the Eastern Conference.
