The Blazers lost a backup shooting guard Tuesday, but gained a backup point guard, according to reports.
Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reported that Gerald Henderson, an unrestricted free agent, agreed to a two-year deal worth $18 million with the Philadelphia 76ers.
Henderson came to Portland last offseason as part of a trade that sent Nicolas Batum to the Charlotte Hornets. He played in 72 games for the Blazers, averaging 8.7 points and nearly 3 rebounds in 20 minutes per game.

The Blazers didn't wait long to add another player to the roster. Josh Robbins, an NBA beat writer for the Orlando Sentinel, reported Tuesday that Portland was finalizing a deal to acquire point guard Shabazz Napier from the Orlando Magic for cash considerations.
Napier, in his second season in the NBA last year, averaged 3.7 points and nearly 2 assists in 11 minutes per game.
