From NBA media reports

Portland Trail Blazers center Jusuf Nurkic has received a qualifying offer from the team and will thus be a restricted free agent this summer, reports ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski (via Twitter):

The Portland Trail Blazers have sent center Jusuf Nurkic his qualifying offer, making him a restricted free agent on July 1, league sources tell ESPN.

Nurkic averaged 14.3 points and nine rebounds per game last season, his first full season with the Blazers. Portland acquired him midway through the 2016-17 season for center Miles Plumlee in a trade with the Denver Nuggets.

In 20 games with the Blazers in 2016-17, Nurkic averaged 15.2 ppg and 10.4 rpg.
