Cavs Extend Alonzo Gee Qualifying Offer

June 29th, 2012 by Colin McGowan

In less earth-shattering news, the Cavs have given Alonzo Gee a qualifying offer, which makes him a restricted free agent this summer and the Cavaliers will have the option to match any offer Gee gets from other teams. It has been rumored the Phoenix Suns might offer him something in the 4 yr/$16 mil range, but at this stage it’s just a rumor. At any rate, the free agency market opens up on July 1st, and we’ll soon find out if another team is dumb enough to overpay a sixth or seventh man. If not, I’m highly in favor of bringing Gee back, especially considering he may be the best option available to start at small forward.
