Toronto Raptors extend qualifying offers to Gary Trent Jr. and Nando de Colo

The Toronto Raptors have extended qualifying offers to Gary Trent Jr. and Nando de Colo, the team announced on Monday.

The move makes both players restricted free agents this offseason.

The Raptors acquired Trent Jr. from the Portland Trail Blazers at this season's trade deadline in a deal for Norman Powell. He appeared in 17 games with the Raptors, 15 of which he started in, averaging 16.2 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.3 assists on .395/.355/.806 shooting splits.

Trent Jr. scored 20 or more points in six games with the Raptors and posted a career-high 44 points in a win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on April 10.

The No. 53 pick in the 2009 NBA Draft, de Colo started his NBA career with the San Antonio Spurs and was traded to the Raptors in his sophomore season. In 21 games with the Raptors in 2013-14, he averaged 3.1 points, 1.6 assists and 1.3 rebounds.

de Colo has since played overseas for CSKA Moscow (2014-19) and is currently a member of Fenerbahçe (2019-present).

As noted by The Athletic's Blake Murphy, the Raptors have extended a qualifying offer to de Colo for eight summers in a row.
