SHARE Bulls interested in Gary Neal — report

Free agent guard Gary Neal will hit the market this summer, and the Bulls are reportedly one of the teams interested in the former Minnesota Timberwolves guard.

From CBS Sports:

Neal’s a shooter, a throw-em-up scorer, and quick to get in the lane. Unfortunately he’s not a finisher and more worrisome, he couldn’t knock down corner 3’s last season.

Neal, who’s known for his time with the San Antonio Spurs, averaged 10 points, two assists and two rebounds last season. Since leaving the Spurs in 2013, Neal has bounced around the NBA, playing for the Milwaukee Bucks, Charlotte Hornets and Timberwolves.

Even with guard Kirk Hinrich opting into his final year with the Bulls, Chicago is still in the market for another guard.
