Its to early to call anything with Henderson but I think with him in the last year of his deal and only making roughly 3.1 mill I think it's going to be hard to deal him ..noir many teams if any are goin to trade just for his expiring and to have him the rest of the year..it's possible but 3 mill isn't going to give teams much relief ...
I think our 2 options as far as dealing him are #1 to trade him to a team for a player and a pick ..but we wont get much in return ..after trying to match salaries ..we could possibly get a player making around 3 and I guess a pick in return ( but that's only if he agrees long term I would imagine ..I'm not positive how the cap works if we were to trade with a team under the cap but I know most times the salaries need to match
#2 ..trading him with Diop ( @ 7.5 mill ) meaning we could get a guy making roughly 10 mill in return ) this is an option I would think might happen if a deal with Utah for Milsap would ever happen
Honestly I think in order to get Milsap we would prob have to give up Henderson / Diop and a pick to get Milsap..that's not so crazy of a deal but when it comes down to dealing him my thoughts have changed somewhat ..Taylor hasn't been playing very good ball lately , so it would def male 1 of our deepest most talented positions change drastically
We also have the option of keeping him ..I wouldnt spend too much on the guy but I'd he were open to say a 4 year deal worth around 28 mill then it's something I would consider .I definately think his stats will improve now that he is starting so that's something we will just have to wait and see ..after we deal Gordon be4 the deadline next year and if we deal Henderson this year or just let him walk then that would really be slim at SG
I'm not really sure there is high demand for Henderson but we all know that all it takes is 1 team ..we are in desperate need of low post scoring and low post defense and I really think that we need to do whatever it takes to get a top notch guy ( within reason ) And regardless of dealing for a big man or just hoping to sign a guy this summer it is something that has to be done ..and this summer is loaded with free agent bigs..obviously Milsap is high on my list but I will tell u 1 guy who is under the radar who is young and very talented is Nikolas Pekovic from Minny ..I know I'm getting off track but he is a guy that probably just wants to cash in ..no matter where he goes ..so he is a guy I would really like to throw a big contract at this summer
Lastly on Henderson ..I am pretty open to either keeping or trading him ..it wouldn't bother me either way ..I think he can be an asset for us moving forward ( for the right price ) and as a guy coming off the bench with a guy way more talented then Taylor ... I would really like to get some more info on how a trade might work with his salary only being a bit above 3 million ..I am pretty up to speed with how the cap and trades work in the NBA but I will admit I am somewhat puzzled about this ..so some more info from those who are cap nerds ( and I mean that tongue and cheek )
