The Los Angeles Lakers stretched out a qualifying offer to previous Gonzaga forward Johnathan Williams, the NBA group declared.

The move implies Williams will be a restricted free agent on Sunday. In the event that Williams acknowledges the offer, he becomes a two-way contract player. Two-way players can spend up to 45 days with a NBA group while splitting time with the franchise’s G League squad.

Williams, working on a two-route bargain as a youngster, gave quality minutes off the Lakers’ bench last season. He took on a greater role in the last month with the list constrained by wounds and the group selecting to close down LeBron James in late March.

The 6-foot-9, 228-pound Williams played in 24 games, contributing 6.5 points and 4.1 bounce back in 15.5 minutes. He made 59% of his field-goal endeavors and scored a season-high 18 points against Boston on March 9.

Williams posted three double-doubles, two in his last four games when his minutes moved into the mid-20s. Los Angeles was 10-14 in games when Williams saw playing time.

Williams averaged 15.2 points and 8.7 bounce back in 36 games with the G League South Bay Lakers.

Previous GU player Zach Norvell Jr. consented to a two-way bargain June 21 with the Lakers.
