ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- The Orlando Magic have extended a qualifying offer to forward Ryan Anderson, the team announced.

New general manager Rob Henningan made the move Thursday, which allows the team to retain the right to match any offer the third-year forward and reigning NBA Most Improved Player receives on the open market.

Anderson becomes a restricted free agent on July 1.

He is one of four key players on the Magic's roster facing contract matters this summer.

All-Star Dwight Howard has yet to sign a deal beyond next year. In addition, point guard Jameer Nelson holds a player option for next season that must be decided by Friday, and the team must decide by July 7 whether to waive guard J.J. Redick or pay the final year of his deal.
