Everybody but Gary Neal out tonight vs Hornets

March 1 = no playoffs for Gary Neal. Flip rejected all attempts by Neal's reps on a buyout (buyout could still happen, but won't). #twolves

Chris Mannix

With buyout discussions in Minnesota going nowhere, Gary Neal will likely finish the rest of the season with the 'Wolves, per NBA source.

Gary Neal continues to prefer a trade/buyout in Minnesota, and talks between the Wolves and Neal's camp are ongoing. ATL watching closely.
