Report: No one wants him.

Just kidding.

Regardless, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein, the Milwaukee Bucks will reportedly  ”do everything they can” to trade Gary Neal.

Sources told ESPN.com that the Bucks will do everything they can to find a new home for Neal before the Feb. 20 trade deadline, conceding that last summer’s signing of the former San Antonio sharpshooter hasn’t worked out as planned.

This comes on the heel of Neal’s semi-altercation with Bucks center Larry Sanders.

And Neal, who’s under contract for just one season beyond this one at $3.2 million, can’t say something like that to the “face of the franchise”, or at least anointed that way after Sanders signed a four-year, $44 million contract extension this past summer.

Word around the league is that the Bucks will “solve” the issue by shipping Neal, before things get worse — if that’s even possible.

Neal is averaging a career-best 10.4 points in 20.5 minutes per game for Milwaukee this season.
