Davis is now a restricted free agent, with Sacramento owning the right to match any offer sheet that he may sign with another team

The Sacramento Kings announced on Tuesday afternoon that they have extended a qualifying offer to guard Terence Davis.

Davis, who was impressive in his short 27-game stint with the Kings last season, will seek a new contract in the neighborhood of $9 million annually according to a report issued by Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee earlier this month.

After the Kings traded a second-round pick to the Toronto Raptors in exchange for the young guard on March 25, the team immediately implemented Davis into the rotation.

In Toronto, Davis appeared in 14.5 minutes per game over appearances–averaging 6.9 points and 1.9 rebounds per game on 41-percent shooting from the field and 36-percent from three-point range in the process.

Sacramento head coach Luke Walton gave Davis the bulk of the rotation’s minutes at the backup shooting guard spot, where Davis averaged 11.1 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.0 steals per game–all career-highs–on 44-percent shooting from the field and 37-percent shooting from beyond the arc over 21.5 minutes per game.

Down the final stretch of the season with De’Aaron Fox and Tyrese Haliburton both out due to injury, Davis thrived in an expanded role, averaging 16.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.6 steals per game over the final 10 games to keep the Kings in the Play-In hunt.

Davis will enter free agency as a restricted free agent, meaning that Sacramento will be able to match any offer sheet that he might sign with another team.

Just last season, guard Bogdan Bogdanovic entered restricted free agency and signed a four-year, $72 million deal with the Atlanta Hawks after the Kings decided against matching the offer.
