SAN ANTONIO – Prior to the NBA Draft, the San Antonio Spurs extended qualifying offers to three players, according to ESPN’s Bobby Marks.
Drew Eubanks, Jakob Poeltl and Quinndary Weatherspoon all received qualifying offers from San Antonio to make them restricted free agents.
The Spurs will now have two days to match any offers from other teams for all three players when free agency begins. The qualifying offers also give San Antonio time to negotiate new contracts instead, should they choose that route.
For Eubanks and Weatherspoon, the qualifying offers are more of a formality. Weatherspoon can be signed to another two-way deal for two more seasons. Eubanks can remain a two-way player for one more season.
Meanwhile Poeltl’s qualifying offer is just for $5 million, but should net him more in free agency regardless of where he signs.
