I'm not going to judge a guy's fg% until he gets consistent minutes - coming off the bench in 'oh shit i get to play tonight' mode is hardly indicative of how well their shot is going to fall.
Mid-range, slashing - Henderson is fine. And with all slashers, 3 point shooting helps. But nowhere in the gospel of basketball does it say that it has to be their own shooting. Grant Hill had shooters happy to be on his team in Detroit. Wade made Cook and Kapono look like borderline stars because they were wide open all day. Reke has Casspi and Greene spotting up. For any slasher, its going to be hard to operate without shooters. Good thing we're the Bobcats though. We got plenty to open the paint up amirite?

What's the biggest difference between Wade, Tyreke, and Hendo? The first two can dribble. Having an outside shot isn't important when you can create for yourself off the dribble.
You can also look at his SL %'s and Preseason %'s, neither are high for him. Nor were they in college--with a shorter 3PT line.
And all of that is fixable. The whole topic was whether or not he was worth picking up his option though and honestly can't think of a reason not to.
Edit: Also, I was just throwing those two out because Teej wanted some guards who couldn't shoot.

Again - wasn't trying to draw a comparison between those guys and Henderson. Just giving the guy his names of players who couldn't shoot.
And it makes no sense to consider dropping either guy at this point.
