OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Reserve guard Daequan Cook has received a qualifying offer from the Oklahoma City Thunder, making him a restricted free agent this offseason.

After Monday’s move, the Thunder will now have the chance to match any contract offers Cook receives from other teams.

Cook joined Oklahoma City in a trade last year with the Miami Heat, then earned a role in the Thunder’s rotation midway through the season.

Cook didn’t play in 34 straight games early in the season, then averaged 6.4 points and shot 45 percent from 3-point range after getting into the rotation.

Cook said last week that he loves it in Oklahoma City and feels “pretty good” about having the chance to return for a second season.
