OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Golden State Warriors have extended qualifying offers to Anthony Morrow and C.J. Watson, making both guards restricted free agents.

The Warriors made the moves Wednesday, giving themselves the right to match any offer sheet signed by either player.

Morrow's offer is worth $1.029 million for next season, while Watson's offer is for $1.25 million.

Morrow averaged 13 points and 3.8 rebounds in 69 games with Golden State last season, making 37 starts. He was fifth in the NBA in 3-point percentage, making 45.6 percent.

Watson averaged 10.3 points and 2.8 assists in 65 games, including 15 starts.

The Warriors didn't make qualifying offers to forward Anthony Tolliver and center Chris Hunter. Both are unrestricted free agents.
