The Thunder have extended guard Daequan Cook a qualifying offer, making him a restricted free agent. Cook’s qualifying offer is for about $3.1 million.
Cook appeared in 43 games in his first season with the Thunder. He averaged 5.6 points and 1.7 rebounds in 13.9 minutes per contest. Cook, who ranked 11th in the NBA in three-point field goal shooting, made 65 of 154 three-point attempts (.422) this season.
In all reality, this likely means Cook will return. It’s a bit hard to see someone offering Cook more than $3.1 million this summer, so I sort of even doubt the Thunder will have to face the decision of matching an offer sheet or not.
