The San Antonio Spurs extended a $1.6 million qualifying offer to Davis Bertans, making him a restricted free agent and preserving their right to match any offer he receives.
It appears San Antonio may have to do that, according to a report.
Darren Wolfson of KSTP reports the Minnesota Timberwolves might be interested in both Bertans and veteran swingman Corey Brewer.
Corey Brewer and Davis Bertans are two more FAs that the #Twolves have planted seeds on. 2018 falls in line with 2016 and 2017 FA process that involved reaching out on dozens upon dozens of players.

Bertans averaged 5.9 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 14.1 minutes in 77 games (10 starts) for San Antonio last season, shooting 44.0 percent from the field and 37.3 percent from deep.
The 25-year-old, 6-foot-10, 210-pounder will begin in his third NBA season this fall.
Brewer, 31, spent last season with the Los Angles Lakers (54 games) and the Oklahoma City.
The 6-9, 186-pound averaged 5.3 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.1 steals in 16.8 minutes in 72 games (18 starts) last season.
Brewer shot 44.9 percent from the field and 28.2 percent from the 3-point arc.
