2014 NBA Free Agency: Hawks issue qualifying offer to Shelvin Mack

The Atlanta Hawks have given Shelvin Mack a qualifying offer per a report from ESPN's Jeff Goodman

The Atlanta Hawks have issued a qualifying offer to guard Shelvin Mack per a report by ESPN's Jeff Goodman.

By extending a qualifying offer, Mack becomes a restricted free agent and gives the Hawks the right of first refusal. Teams may sign Mack to an offer sheet and Atlanta will have three days in order to match. Its the identical situation that Jeff Teague was in last offseason. Mack's qualifying is worth $1,148,163 and can be rescinded by the Hawks.

Mack went to training camp last season with an unguaranteed contract. He made the club and eventually replaced first-round pick Dennis Schröder as the team's backup point guard. Mack appeared in 73 games and averaged 7.5 points and 3.7 assists in just over 20 minutes per game.

No word yet on the status of Mike Scott or Gustavo Ayon who are both eligible for qualifying offers. If Atlanta elects not to issue a qualifying offer by the midnight deadline then both players will become unrestricted free agents.
