NBA Notebook: Curry, Hansbrough, Henderson sign

Associated Press
The NBA notebook …
OAKLAND, Calif. ó Stephen Curry, the seventh overall pick in last month’s NBA draft, has signed with the Golden State Warriors.
Curry can be paid up to $2.71 million, which is 120 percent of the requirements of the NBA’s rookie wage scale.
The 21-year-old Curry left Davidson after three seasons. He led the nation in scoring with 28.6 points per game as a junior, and also averaged 4.4 rebounds, 5.6 assists and 2.53 steals in 34 games.
A 6-foot-3 guard, Curry will begin his professional career this week as a member of the Warriors summer league squad in Las Vegas.
HANSBROUGH
INDIANAPOLIS ó The Indiana Pacers have signed Tyler Hansbrough, the former North Carolina star who was the team’s top pick in the NBA draft.
The 6-foot-9 forward had been playing with the Pacers summer league team in Orlando, Fla., before his singing was announced.
As the 13th overall pick, he’s slotted in the NBA’s rookie salary scale to receive about $1.5 million this season and nearly $1.7 million next season, with a $1.8 million option for his third year.
HENDERSON
CHARLOTTE ó The Charlotte Bobcats have signed guard Gerald Henderson, less than two weeks after he was the 12th pick in the draft.
Under the NBA’s rookie pay scale, the former Duke star will receive about $1.6 million next season and $1.75 million a year later. The Bobcats hold options for a third year at about $1.88 million and a fourth season at $2.58 million.
With the Bobcats not fielding a summer league team, Henderson will play for Minnesota’s entry in Las Vegas beginning Sunday.
