The Indiana Pacers extended qualifying offers to Jarrett Jack and Josh McRoberts making them restricted free agents when the NBA's free agent market opens for business on Wednesday.
Bruno's latest Caught in the Web has the details including comments from Larry Bird.
"We want 'em back," said Bird. "We know what we can do with Josh but Jarrett's still out there. We have to wait and see if anybody puts an offer in on him. I'm sure there's a lot of teams interested but with the economy the way it is, I don't see a lot of movement.
The Pacers can match any offers made to Jack or McRoberts but I wouldn't expect the team to ante up too much higher than the qualifying offers. Jack's value in free agency should be a good indicator of strength of this summer's market across the league.
