The Warriors aren't about to let Jordan Bell go just yet.
The Athletic's Shams Charania reported Friday, citing league sources, that the Warriors have extended a qualifying offer to Bell, making him a restricted free agent.

The qualifying offer for Bell is worth just over $1.8 million.
After showing signs that he was a keeper during his rookie season, Bell took a step back this past season. In 68 games, he averaged 3.3 points and 2.7 rebounds.
But with the roster depleted, the Warriors will look to keep Bell and hope that he can absorb additional minutes next season.
