Anderson, Lopez, Brooks Receive Qualifying Offers

1:47pm: Paul Coro of The Arizona Republic reports the Suns have issued qualifying offers to Robin Lopez and Aaron Brooks (Twitter link). The offer to Lopez is $4,001,917, and the offer to Brooks is $2,976,637. The Suns are reportedly planning to match offers other teams make to Lopez in restricted free agency.

1:40pm: The Magic have tendered a qualifying offer to Ryan Anderson, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports, via Twitter. The one-year offer is unlikely to be accepted and is largely a procedural move that will allow the Magic to match any offer that other teams can make after July 1. The offer to Anderson, who meets the starter criteria, is $4,385,416.

Anderson, the league's Most Improved Player this past season, is likely to be one of the most sought-after free agents. The Magic and Anderson have expressed mutual admiration, but the 6-foot-10 three-pointer gunner could sign an offer sheet with a team like the Nets, who are seeking an upgrade at power forward, or the Bucks, should they fail to sign Ersan Ilyasova.

Anderson averaged 16.1 points, 7.7 rebounds and shot 39.3% from the three-point line this year, but saw those numbers take a hit in the playoffs. He averaged just 9.6 PPG and 4.6 RPG in the Magic's five-game loss to the Pacers.
