Henderson agreed to a contract with the Hornets on Saturday, Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio reports.
The undrafted shooting guard will compete for a spot on the Hornets' 15-man roster, though may ultimately end up in the G-League as a member of the Greensboro Swarm. Last season, Henderson posted 13.8 points and 3.1 rebounds for NC State.
Monk is still working back from the "significant" ankle injury that's plagued him since before the NBA Draft, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.
Monk tweaked his ankle during a pre-draft workout and was subsequently held out of summer league play in July. The No. 11 overall pick has been cleared to return to basketball activities, but according to coach Steve Clifford, Monk is still regaining his conditioning. Clifford noted that Monk was unable to finish a non-strenuous workout last week, but the team remains confident that he'll be at full strength by the time the regular season arrives in just over a month. One of the most exciting players in college basketball last season, Monk will bring a much-needed scoring punch to the Hornets, but Clifford recently clarified that the Kentucky product will come off the bench, at least to begin the season. The concern, according to Clifford, appears to be the rookie's struggles on defense. "We've watched film, I've made edits of his defense in college," Clifford said. "It won't be okay (for him to continue guarding that way). It's a different world and they're going to go at him more."
Carter-Williams may not be ready for the start of the regular season after undergoing a knee procedure in August, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.
Addressing the media Friday, coach Steve Clifford revealed that Carter-Williams underwent a procedure last month, but he did not provide further details. We'll continue to monitor the situation as training camp approaches, but if Carter-Williams ultimately misses time during the regular season, rookie Malik Monk would likely see increased time at point guard behind starter Kemba Walker. Carter-Williams is coming off of a disappointing season with the Bulls, in which he finished with averages of 6.6 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game.
