Warriors Extend Qualifying Offer To Two-Way Guard

The Golden State Warriors have reportedly extended a two-way qualifying offer to Quinndary Weatherspoon, making him a restricted free agent when the market opens on July 1, per Keith Smith of Spotrac.

This gives the defending champs the right to match any offer the 25-year-old receives in free agency.

Weatherspoon appeared in 11 games for Golden State last season. He averaged 2.7 points and 1.3 rebounds. 

The 6-foot-3 shooting guard scored a season-high 11 points, going 4-of-5 from the field in 15 minutes, on March 3 in a 7-point loss to the Denver Nuggets.

Weatherspoon played nine games with Golden State's G-League affiliate, the Santa Cruz Warriors, where he turned in averages of 16.1 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 3.7 assists. 

This is just one of the decisions the defending champs will need to make this offseason. Perhaps their top priorities will be retaining big man Kevon Looney, defensive stalwart Gary Payton II, and steady veteran wing Otto Porter Jr.
