Report: The Spurs have extended qualifying offers to Poeltl, Weatherspoon, and Eubanks

New, comments

The wheels of free agency are officially in motion (even if it doesn’t officially start until Friday).

The Spurs have extended qualifying offers to Jakob Poeltl, Drew Eubanks, and Quinndary Weatherspoon, according to ESPN’s Bobby Marks.

Jakob Poeltl is the most interesting one here. This means he is now a restricted free agent if he signs the offer, and as a former 9th overall pick who failed to meet “starter status” (either started half of the games or played 2,000 minutes the prior season), his base offer should be around $4.6 million. Assuming he signs it when free agency begins on Friday, the Spurs will have up to 72 hours match any offer he receives. The Spurs can also extend their own offer, which he could either accept or decline. In that scenario, he would be on the one year deal from signing his qualifying offer and become an unrestricted free agent next year.

Coming off two-way contracts, Eubanks and Weatherspoon are also restricted free agents. The former has exhausted his two-way eligibility, while the latter could still be signed to another two-way contract.
