Report: Gary Neal Signing With Bucks
According to Marc Stein of ESPN, the Milwaukee Bucks are close to signing sharp shooting free agent Gary Neal. “Hearing: Bucks closing in on completing signing of Gary Neal after sources say Neal’s agent David Bauman no longer in negotiations w/Hawks MIL & ATL were top two pursuers after Spurs withdrew qualifying offer to make Neal unrestricted free agent,” Stein tweeted. “Deal w/Bucks now expected today.”
Neal became an unrestricted free agent after the San Antonio Spurs decided to pull their qualifying offer. And as expected, it didn’t take very long for Neal to get picked up off the market.
Neal is a fearless shooter with ice in his veins. He may not be Monta Ellis, but he is a much cheaper version of him. Furthermore, he is a great locker room guy and knows what it takes to play big in the playoffs.
