Report: Several playoff teams, including Hawks, trying to trade for Gary Neal

Gary Neal just got traded to the Timberwolves, but he might not be long for Minnesota.

Ken Berger of CBSSports.com:

Neal is a decent reserve scoring guard, but there’s a reason the Hornets dealt him to upgrade. He’s weak defensively, and his shooting has left him this season.

Maybe he’d help a playoff team, which could put him in the right – limited – role. But it’s probably not worth giving up a draft pick for him when the Timberwolves might buy him out.

Sure, that’d leave open the chance he chooses another team as a free agent, but I think that’s a chance worth taking.
