In an expected move, the Sacramento Kings have extended a qualifying offer to third-year guard Terence Davis, making the 24-year-old a restricted free agent.
Acquired at the deadline from the Toronto Raptors for a 2021 second-round pick, Davis flourished down the stretch for the short-handed Kings.
In the final 10 games of the season, the Davis posted 16.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.6 steals in 27.7 minutes per game while both De’Aaron Fox and Tyrese Haliburton were out of commission.
The 6-foot-4 shooting guard made a solid impact with the Kings overall after struggling early in the year with the Raptors. He’s a high-energy wing who fits perfectly into the Kings’ up-tempo style and there is potential for a long-term fit in Sacramento.
Davis’ qualifying offer comes in at just $1.9 million. By extending the QO, the Kings now have the right of first refusal if he lands an offer sheet with another team. Barring an over the top offer from an outside club, there is a good chance Davis will return for another tour of duty in Sacramento next season.
