Washington, DC – The Bobcats have exercised the fourth-year 13 season.
Henderson is Charlotte's leading scorer this season with an average of 15.4 points per game. He has also posted 4.6 rebounds and 1.8 assists while starting every game for the 3-15 Bobcats and averaging nearly 35 minutes, a career high.
"Gerald Henderson embodies the basketball culture we have created here of putting guys on the floor who work hard at their craft, have a passion for the game and are willing to take advantage of the resources afforded to them here in Charlotte," said Rod Higgins, Bobcats president of basketball operations. "He deserves this and we look forward to watching him grow as a player."
Charlotte selected Henderson with the 12th overall pick in the 2009 draft.
