(Blazers’ guard Gerald) Henderson, 28, has allowed himself to contemplate a future in Portland. Over the last six months, he’s grown close to Lillard, become a respected leader inside the Blazers’ locker room, carved out a role he likes as a scoring guard off the bench and learned to embrace Portland and the West Coast.
“I’d love to come back here,” he said. “If they want me back and we can come up with a contract that makes sense, then I’d love to come back here. This has been a great year. I was just telling the guys; this has probably been one of the most fun teams I’ve been on. This has been one of my most fun years. Because we’ve really worked for this. We’ve really earned this. It’s a tight group, a great group of guys.”
