PHI Shooting Guard: 6’5, 206 lbs; 9th year, Duke

NBA Role: versatile two-guard UnderDOG

Primarily a straight-line drive/midrange jump shooter, Gerald Henderson is an easy leaper who produces underground numbers at the two; asserts himself defensively but has lost a step since his stopper days at Doo-er, Duke; should get down on the box more often – very steady w/ his athletic, turnaround J*; inconsistent range from downtown but he’s a pro, can’t leave Hendo in the corner; Sixers finally have a veteran wing – is Henderson Philly’s full-time starter going into 2017-18? – best utilized as a two-way wing off the bench, could take shots away from some of Brett Brown’s emerging talent

*Hendo’s actually a dying breed in the sense he’s an athletic two who prefers posting rather than shooting treys

Signature Move: crossover, midrange J
