Milwaukee Bucks extend qualifying offer to Jordan Nwora

·1 min read

The Milwaukee Bucks elected to extend a qualifying offer to forward Jordan Nwora before Wednesday's deadline, a league source confirmed to the Journal Sentinel.

For this season, the qualifying offer is worth about $2 million.

Nwora may choose to accept that offer, or he could negotiate a new deal with the Bucks or another team as a restricted free agent. If offered a deal by a new team, Milwaukee would have to choose whether or not to match it and retain Nwora.

Nwora, 23, has flashed his potential as a shooter, but hasn't earned consistent playing time. He was a second-round draft choice of the Bucks in 2020. The 6-foot-8 Nwora averaged 7.9 points per game while shooting 34.8% on three-pointers last season.
