Gerald Henderson said he'll be comfortable stepping into a leadership role playing for a young 76ers team.
"I always felt like on all levels I’ve been a leader," said Henderson, 28. "So that won’t be difficult for me. The biggest things I bring are my leadership, my defense, and my energy and stuff that every night they can expect from me." Henderson will provide with a much-needed veteran presence in the Philadelphia locker room, and he should receive his fair share of minutes as the unquestioned starting two-guard, but his only real contribution to fantasy teams will be his scoring.

Gerald Henderson officially signed a two-year, $18 million deal with the 76ers on Saturday.

He called signing with the 76ers a "dream come true" and said that no other team "could offer the feelings I have towards the organization." Henderson will get plenty of minutes in Philly and projects to be the starting shooting guard, but he doesn't have much upside in standard leagues.

Gerald Henderson has agreed to a deal with the 76ers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

Henderson's deal is for $18 million over two years, according to Woj and will provide the Sixers with a veteran swingman. While Henderson can help the Sixers roster, he won't be much of a factor outside of deeper fantasy leagues.

Unrestricted free agent Gerald Henderson said that seven or eight teams have expressed interest in his services.

Per Hendo, the Blazers are among those teams. It's unclear what the market currently looks like for the veteran swingman, but the other dominos should begin to fall once Kevin Durant makes his free agent decision.

Gerald Henderson said that he would "absolutely" like to return to the Blazers as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Henderson said that at this point in his career, earning significant minutes on a winning team is much more important to him than starting, so it'll be interesting to see if him and the Blazers can work out a deal. However, with Meyers Leonard, Moe Harkless and Allen Crabbe all set to hit the open market this offseason, Henderson probably won't be a major priority for Portland during the early goings of free agency.

Gerald Henderson started the second half on Saturday against the Warriors, finishing with eight points, two assists and one rebound in 23 minutes.

This has a little to do with Moe Harkless (hip) not being 100 percent. Henderson with the other four starters has been a positive combination for the Blazers in this series, which is saying something after they were blown out in the first two. With Harkless expected to play, Henderson is a gamble in DFS.

Gerald Henderson started the second half for Moe Harkless.

Harkless isn't having his best game and the lineup data so far shows Henderson for Harkless was having better success so far in this series. If Hendo can keep it going, he might earn more run in Game 4.
May 7 - 10:06 PM

Gerald Henderson and Anderson Varejao were both ejected in Game 1 on Sunday for double technicals.

It was a minor confrontation that started after Varejao appeared to trip Henderson. It would be a shock if either player is suspended, so expect to see them both in Game 2 on Tuesday. Henderson finished with five points, three assists, three boards, one block and one 3-pointer in 17 minutes.
May 1 - 5:31 PM

According to The Oregonian, the Blazers explored potential trades for Gerald Henderson at the deadline.

Hendo will be a free agent this summer, so the Blazers were probably just doing their due diligence. They have to be pretty relieved that they didn't trade him, as Henderson has become a key member of the second unit with averages of 10.3 points, 3.2 boards, 1.1 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.6 steals after the All-Star break. He will likely see minutes in the lower 20s during the playoffs.
Apr 17 - 9:27 AM

Gerald Henderson scored 17 points off the bench on Saturday vs. the Heat, adding three boards, two assists and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

This was his 30th game of the season with double-digit points off the bench, and it's obvious that the Blazers love him. He will be a free agent this summer, but he said that he would "love" to re-sign with Portland. He's a solid bench presence for the Blazers, but he's only a fantasy option in deeper leagues.
Apr 3 - 12:47 AM

Gerald Henderson said he would "love" to re-sign with the Blazers this summer.

"I'd love to come back here," Henderson said. "If they want me back and we can come up with a contract that makes sense, then I'd love to come back here. This has been a great year. I was just telling the guys; this has probably been one of the most fun teams I've been on." Henderson has emerged as a leader off the bench, averaging 11.2 points, 3.6 boards, 1.4 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.8 3-pointers over his last five games. To be clear, he's still only an option in deeper leagues.

Gerald Henderson scored 15 points against the Celtics on Thursday with five rebounds, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes.

He's actually played well in his last five, averaging 11.2 points, 3.6 boards, 1.4 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.8 treys. Henderson is still only worth a look in deeper leagues.
Apr 1 - 2:01 AM

Damian Lillard praised Gerald Henderson's leadership abilities and called him a "soldier."

"He is one of those guys when it really gets tough out there, he’s one of those guys you know you can count on," Lillard said. "When the game gets a little rough, the other team gets going a little bit and you are up against it, some guys get quiet. Some guys shy away from it. But he got louder in the huddle.’’ Henderson stepped up on Friday with 19 points and six boards, but he's only averaging 20.8 minutes per game over his last five which limits his value to deeper leagues.

Terry Stotts said the Blazers "turned the corner when Gerald [Henderson] started feeling good."

Hendo is averaging 11.8 points, 3.0 rebounds, 0.7 steals and 0.7 3-pointers (1.0 TO) on 51.9 percent shooting over his last six games, and he's established himself as a critical part of Portland's rotation. Despite the solid play, Henderson has more value in reality than he does in fantasy.

Gerald Henderson had another nice game off Portland's bench on Sunday with 19 points on 8-of-9 shooting, four boards, three assists, one steal, one 3-pointer and zero turnovers in 23 minutes.

The Blazers didn't move their veteran backup at the deadline, opting to keep the team chemistry intact -- it's paying off with a string of victories that have Portland vying for the No. 6 seed in the West. Henderson's real-world value eclipses his fantasy appeal, however, as he's just a low-end source of points, 3-pointers and FG percentage, with minimal turnovers.
