Henderson is widely expected to be drafted either second by Charlotte or third by Portland. Alabama forward Brandon Miller is expected to be selected either a spot ahead or behind Henderson.

“You always want a guy like me, that dog mentality,” Henderson said, via Casey Holdahl of “Just my personality, the culture I bring to the locker room. I’m a great leader, I’ll tell what’s up and I can do everything on the floor. I can do everything on the floor. I’m going to go out there and give my 110 percent every day. And that’s the thing about me: I’m very consistent in effort. Even if it’s not there, I just try to even it out the next game, try to get right to it. Give it a 120 if I didn’t give it 110 the last game.”
