"Gerald Henderson is an experienced veteran that will bring professionalism and leadership to our young group and developing team culture," said Bryan Colangelo, president of basketball operations for the 76ers.

"Adding a dynamic wing with defensive ability like Gerald is also something that we had hoped to accomplish this off season."

Henderson played three seasons at Duke before being selected by Charlotte with the 12th overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft. His father, Gerald Henderson Sr., played 13 seasons in the NBA, including parts of two seasons with the Sixers.
