OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The Golden State Warriors have extended qualifying offers to forward Harrison Barnes and center Festus Ezeli.

The moves made Wednesday mean Barnes and Ezeli will be restricted free agents in July and the Warriors will have the right to match any offer sheet they sign with another team.

Golden State didn’t extend qualifying offers to guard Ian Clark and forward James Michael McAdoo, making them unrestricted free agents.

The 24-year-old Barnes averaged a career-best 11.7 points to go with 4.9 rebounds and 1.8 assists last season. Barnes was also recently named to the U.S. Olympic team.

The 26-year-old Ezeli set career-highs with 7.0 points and 5.6 rebounds per game.
