SEATTLE -- The Seattle SuperSonics have extended qualifying offers to four restricted free agents, including key reserve forward Vladimir Radmanovic and starting power forward Reggie Evans, the team announced Thursday.

The other two players are Ronald Murray and Damien Wilkins, who came off the bench for the Sonics this past season when the club won 52 games and the Northwest Division title.

The Sonics were eliminated from the NBA playoffs by the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference semifinals.

The qualifying offers were expected from the team. They mean the Sonics have the right of first refusal to match any offers Radmanovic, Evans, Murray and Wilkins get from other teams.

The Sonics have five other players who can become free agents, including guards Ray Allen and Antonio Daniels.

Coach Nate McMillan's contract was scheduled to expire on Thursday.
