What is Free Agent, restricted?

Free Agent, restricted meaning an NBA player whose contract has expired and who has received a “qualifying offer” from his current club, which provides a salary level predetermined by the collective bargaining agreement. While this player is free to negotiate an offer from a new team, his current team has a right of first refusal to match that offer, thereby obligating him to remain with his current team.
