It's possible that it's about clearing room on the roster, but I figure it's more likely that they were just waiting to see what they could get back in a sign and trade deal, and when nothing looked appealing, it no longer is worth it to make him a restricted free agent. With the qualifying offer withdrawn, you do eliminate the risk as some have mentioned that he takes the qualifying offer and comes back on the roster and then you have to move somebody to sign someone like Greg Oden or Mike Miller or Mo Williams.
