Gerald Henderson looked like one of the top free agents available.

This could explain why.

Chris Haynes of ESPN:

Jorge Sierra of HoopsHype:

That’s a bummer for Henderson, who at least got a $9 million payout from the 76ers last season. At 29, he could have trouble regaining the athleticism necessary to be effective.

When healthy, Henderson is a solid wing. He’s a willingly physical defender and capable 3-point shooter.

But it’ll be a long road before a team commits a roster spot to him.
