According to league sources, Bucks veteran backup shooting guard Gary Neal and his agent, David Bauman, have talked to Hammond in recent weeks about the possibility of a trade. The Bucks signed Neal to a three-year, $9.75 million contract over the summer. While Neal played a key role off the bench in helping San Antonio advance to the Finals last season, he has had a roller-coaster season with the Bucks, averaging 10.2 points. However, Neal has played quite well in the last two games, having scored 18 and 17 points, respectively. In those two games, he connected on 14 of 23 shots from the field. Racine Journal-Times

Neal, of course, is not used to this level of dysfunction and disorganization. Not after spending three seasons with the Spurs. He could have remained with the Spurs had he accepted a qualifying offer of $1.11 million last summer. Instead, Neal chose two years and $6.5 million in Milwaukee, where he had not played in the previous six games until Sunday, when he went 1 for 8. “When you're evaluating job choices, the financial aspect comes into it,” said Neal, 29. “I think I made the best decision for me and my family. I didn't know the team would struggle in the manner of 7-33, and I didn't know I'd be getting DNPs.” San Antonio Express-News

Reserve forward Matt Bonner will undergo a “minor corrective procedure” on his fractured nose and then be fitted for a protective mask on Monday, the Spurs announced Sunday. Bonner, who is expected to be available for Wednesday’s home game with Oklahoma City, will wear the mask for approximately a month. He suffered the injury in the first half of Friday’s 109-100 loss to Portland. San Antonio Express-News

Gary Neal and Larry Sanders in big argument in Bucks locker room after game. Was going on as reporters entered. The latest lopsided loss for the Milwaukee Bucks resulted in a bitter locker room argument between teammates Larry Sanders and Gary Neal. The two were arguing after reporters were allowed in the locker room following the Bucks' 116-100 loss to the Phoenix Suns on Saturday night at the US Airways Center. Reporters were asked by players to leave but the argument continued and Neal left shouting, "I earned my money. Why don't you try it?" Sanders earlier could be heard questioning Neal's attitude. But Sanders said he would not comment about the argument and said simply, "I had a bad game." Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
