Source: Kings Extend Willie Cauley-Stein Qualifying Offer, Make Him RFA

Willie Cauley-Stein is ready to move on from the Kings.

The team, however, isn't going to let that happen just yet.

NBC Sports California's James Ham confirmed through a team source that Sacramento has extended a qualifying offer to Cauley-Stein, making him a restricted free agent.

Earlier this week, Cauley-Stein's agent went public with their desire to move on from the Kings. Agent Roger Montgomery said he didn't want the Kings to extend a qualifying offer to the fourth-year center.

But a day later, sources confirmed to Ham that the Kings were mulling their options regarding Cauley-Stein.
