Gerald Henderson, Danny Granger Opt In to Contracts

Just a few days after Charlotte Hornets big man Al Jefferson exercised his player option for next season, teammate Gerald Henderson did the same thing, the team announced Wednesday.

Henderson will make $6 million next season in Charlotte. The Hornets now have about $64 million guaranteed for next year, which is just under the projected salary cap of about $67 million.

Henderson started 72 of 80 games this year, averaging 12.1 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.6 assists while shooting 43.7 percent overall and 33.1 percent from three.

Another player who opted in to his contract for next season is Phoenix Suns swingman Danny Granger, according to Eric Pincus of Basketball Insiders. Granger will make $2.17 million next season.

Granger started the year with the Miami Heat, but he was dealt to the Suns in the Goran Dragic trade at the deadline. The 32-year-old didn’t play much for the Heat and didn’t play a single game in Phoenix, as he hasn’t been the same player since getting hurt in the 2012-13 season with the Indiana Pacers.
