Jerel McNeal Rumors

All NBA Players

Former NBA D-League standout and Call-Up recipient Jerel McNeal has returned back with the Bakersfield Jam. McNeal played in China earlier this season for Zhejiang Chouzhou and averaged 21.5 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 4.6 assists in 15 games. Last season for the Jam, McNeal averaged 18.0 points, 3.0 rebounds and 5.4 assists in 44 games. He also earned an NBA Call-Up with the Utah Jazz at the end of March.
Teams have until April 17 to sign players who will be eligible for the first round of the postseason. Here are some of the top D-League players at each position, who could be called up at some point in the next month. GUARDS: Delonte West, Dominique Jones, Lester Hudson, Kris Joseph, Josh Selby, Courtney Fortson, Jerel McNeal, Andrew Goudelock, Christian Eyenga, Lazar Hayward, Justin Dentmon, Chris Roberts, Ben Uzoh, Sean Singletary, Ron Howard, Darington Hobson.

CENTERS: Jerome Jordan, Hassan Whiteside, Vernon Macklin, Hilton Armstrong, Keith Benson, Brian Butch, Mickell Gladness, Solomon Alabi, Jarrid Famous, Augustus Gilchrist.
Among the free agents the Wolves will work out Thursday and Friday are former NBA players Quincy Douby, Orien Greene, J.R. Giddens, Steven Hunter, Cedric Jackson, Matt Janning, Alexander Johnson, Jerel McNeal, James Singleton and John Thomas; second-year players who played in the D-League last season including Matt Bouldin and DeShawn Sims; former Memphis guard Darius Washington Jr. who is most famous for missing clutch free-throws; former D-League standout James Mays who spent the last two seasons in China and Turkey; and a fellow by the name of Chris Daniels who either attended college in Georgia or at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi (I’m guessing it’s the latter).
The Hornets are not going to extend guard Jerel McNeal’s 10-day contract, which he signed March 9, team officials said Friday. McNeal has not played in the five games since joining the Hornets. McNeal, a 6-3 point guard, is expected to return to the Rio Grande Valley Vipers in the NBA Development League. The Hornets signed McNeal because starting point guard Chris Paul was sidelined with a concussion, and they needed depth at the position until he returned.
