NBA Rumors: Milwaukee Bucks, Oklahoma City Thunder after Gary Neal

Last week, a report surfaced that the Milwaukee Bucks were interested in trading veteran guard Gary Neal to a contender.

Neal hasn’t played as much as he’d like this season and his role as a tutor, leader and mentor for the Bucks’ young players hasn’t worked out as well as they’d thought due to that lack of playing time.

The Charlotte Bobcats, who badly want to make a move to ensure they make the playoffs and have been connected with Philadelphia 76ers’ wing Evan Turner and Boston Celtics’ power forward Brandon Bass, are interested in Neal.

The Oklahoma City Thunder certainly qualify as a contender – they have the NBA’s best record. They are another team who is hopeful that they can add Neal and his shooting to their roster for the stretch run.

Neal is averaging 10.2 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 20.2 minutes per game.
