Grizzlies extend offers to Warrick, Navarro

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - The Memphis Grizzlies have made qualifying offers to restricted free agents Hakim Warrick and Juan Carlos Navarro.

Warrick is the Grizzlies' last remaining player from the club's 2006 playoff appearance. The forward averaged 11.6 points and 5.0 rebounds in 82 games last season.

Navarro averaged 10.9 points and 2.2 assists in 82 games during the 2007-2008 season, his only one with the NBA.

The guard returned to Spain, but Memphis retains the right to match any future offers in the NBA.

The team announced the moves Monday.

According to the league's collective bargaining agreement, a team must tender a qualifying offer to a restricted free agent before June 30 if that team is to retain the right of first refusal for the player.
