Send Gerald Henderson to the D-League? Why?

Rick Bonnell floats an idea that terrifies me -- I really hope there's no basis for this other than his own musings, that it's not something the team is testing through him.

Crazy idea that I don't think is so crazy: Send Gerald Henderson to the D-league for a bit.

I don't comment on Bonnell's posts much, but this one requires comment with a theme you've seen here before:

What does Stephen Graham do that either Brown or Henderson can't do? Furthermore, even if you think Graham is better right now than either of those guys at the 2 and 3 (I don't), does that present-day production outweigh the benefits of giving the rookies real NBA minutes? He may be a great guy, but he's not a good basketball player, and he has no future on the Bobcats, so why is LB messing around playing him more minutes than the guys who ostensibly do have a future with this team?
