NBA free agency: Gary Neal to sign with Bucks, according to report
The Milwaukee Bucks and free agent guard Gary Neal agreed to a two-year deal worth slightly more than $3 million on Saturday, according to Charles Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The deal shores up the shooting guard position for the club with O.J. Mayo and Neal replacing Monta Ellis and J.J. Redick on the roster.
Neal became a restricted free agent this summer after playing a key reserve role for the San Antonio Spurs, but failed to garner much interest on the open market. San Antonio looked to trim the fat from its payroll and Nealwas seen as superfluous so the team eventually pulled its qualifying offer, making Neal an unrestricted free agent.
In 68 games with San Antonio last season, Neal averaged 9.5 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game. He's a 40 percent shooter from beyond the arc during his NBA career.
