Potential landing spots for Neal
By Joe Kaiser
UPDATE: Though there is very little today in terms of specific teams that are interested in former San Antonio guard Gary Neal, one Eastern Conference team has emerged as a possibility.
That team, according to this tweet earlier today by Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times, is the Milwaukee Bucks.
Other teams are sure to be involved in the Neal sweepstakes, and we'll be sure to pass them along once the information comes out.
With the news Tuesday, reported by our own Marc Stein, that San Antonio is thought to be in the process of withdrawing their qualifying offer to Gary Neal, lets take a look at some of the places where the sharp-shooting guard could end up if he does in fact become an unrestricted free agent.
Stein writes that "all signals suggest that Neal, after strong play in the NBA Finals, is sure to be snapped up quickly once he becomes a free agent."
We have to believe that teams that might be willing to do what it takes to add an experienced shooter like Neal to its roster could include Memphis, Oklahoma City, Chicago, Golden State, Washington, Detroit and maybe even rebuilding teams like Utah, Charlotte, Milwaukee and Philadelphia. We'll keep you posted when we hear further details.
