The Washington Wizards have tendered a $2M qualifying offer to make Anthony Gill a restricted free agent on July 1, a league source tells @spotrac.— Keith Smith (@KeithSmithNBA) June 28, 2022
In the 2021-22 NBA season, Gill made 44 appearances, averaging 4.1 points per game. He also made 53.8 percent of his three point shots, which is very good for a power forward like him.
It’s a minor move for Washington, at least in terms of how many minutes Gill will play per game. But Gill was effective as a bench player and had a +15 net rating (132 offensive vs. 117 defensive) on the floor. That number will even out some next season, but it’s certainly not a bad thing when Gill is playing and giving starters like Rui Hachimura and Kyle Kuzma a breather.
Free Agency starts on Thursday, June 30 at 6 p.m. ET when teams can begin negotiations. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
