The Milwaukee Bucks have extended a qualifying offer to guard Malcolm Brogdon, according to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.
The $1.9 million qualifying offer makes Brogdon a restricted free agent, meaning the Bucks retain the right to match any offer he receives.
Before suffering a minor plantar fascia tear in his right foot in March, Brogdon was averaging 15.6 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 28.6 minutes for the Bucks last season.
The 2017 NBA Rookie of the Year, Brogdon shot 50.5 percent from the floor, 42.6 percent from long distance and a league-best 92.8 percent from the free-throw line, all career-high numbers.
Brogdon, 26, returned to the Bucks for the Eastern Conference Finals against the Toronto Raptors, averaging 13.0 points, 4.9 boards and 3.4 dimes in 28.3 minutes, with a shooting line of 44.9/37.8/63.6.
The 36th overall pick of the 2016 NBA Draft out of Virginia, the 6-foot-5, 229-pounder carries career averages of 12.8 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 28.1 minutes in 187 games (112 starts), shooting 48.4 percent from the field, 40.8 percent from the 3-point line and 89.5 percent from the charity stripe in 28.1 minutes in 187 games (112 starts).
