Neither the Charlotte Bobcats nor shooting guard Gary Neal discussed specifics on why Neal was held out of Wednesday’s 98-85 victory over the Washington Wizards. But it was behavioral, rather than medical, and Neal said he made amends. “I made a mistake,” Neal told the Observer post-game. ‘Me and coach talked about it and we’ll move forward from there.” Coach Steve Clifford called this an “internal team matter.” He said it was over after the game and Neal’s minutes won’t be affected when the Bobcats play the Minnesota Timberwolves at home Friday.

Sources close to the situation in Milwaukee have informed Basketball Insiders that despite the widespread reports circulating, actual trade talks have been slow and the general feeling in the locker room among players is that there won’t be a rash of moves at the deadline. The source maintains the situation remains fluid, but the team is likely to hold on to assets such as Ersan Ilyasova, Gary Neal and Luke Ridnour if they cannot secure the desired package in return.

The Milwaukee Bucks have steadily progressed with several teams in discussions on a trade of Gary Neal and await a franchise to advance toward completion, a league source told RealGM. Neal has remained prepared for a change of scenery on a playoff contender, and the Bucks’ front office has worked hard to find an amicable trade to part ways. No deal is imminent, and there’s strong belief negotiations will push Thursday’s afternoon deadline. RealGM
