    Default Qualifying Offer Extended To Weems

    Let the polarizing opinions begin

    Edit: I mean a qualifying offer was extended, my bad. Mods to the rescue.

    The Toronto Raptors announced Monday they have extended a qualifying offer to restricted free agent guard-forward Sonny Weems. Per team policy, financial details were not disclosed.

    In accordance with the league’s collective bargaining agreement, in order for a team to retain its rights of first refusal with respect to a restricted free agent it must tender the player a qualifying offer prior to June 30. A restricted free agent may sign an offer sheet with any team, but is subject to a right of first refusal in favour of the NBA team for which the player last played.

    Does Sonny even have a team option? I thought he did not:

    As per Raptors.com:

    The Toronto Raptors announced Monday they have extended a qualifying offer to restricted free agent guard-forward Sonny Weems. Per team policy, financial details were not disclosed.

    In accordance with the league’s collective bargaining agreement, in order for a team to retain its rights of first refusal with respect to a restricted free agent it must tender the player a qualifying offer prior to June 30.

    As a bench 2, learning his place and role on the team: sure; as a starter, a 3, or a high minute player: no.

    This is likely just a technicality, to give the Raps options:

    - now if a team is interested in signing him, there is potential to make it a S&T, where the Raps might get a small piece in return (even a 2nd round pick would be nice)

    - if the Raps don't want him and can't get anything for him in a S&T, they can rescind the qualifying offer and it costs them nothing

    - if the Raps can't work out another move (trade/free agent) to bring in another wing, they could re-sign Weems for cheap as the 4th wing behind DeRozan/J.Johnson/Barbosa (since Kleiza will miss significant time rehabbing from surgery)

    It was a cheap signing, Weems made <1Mil last year, I think he's a solid bench player he tried too much after coming back from his injury after all it was a contract year. But with D.Casey now as the coach I think we'll be seeing much better defense and we DEFINITELY won't be seeing "Chuck" Weems.
