There’s no place like home for former Towson men’s basketball standout Gary Neal ’07, who is off to see the Wizards this summer.
The Baltimore, Maryland, native has agreed to a one-year, $2.1 million deal with the Washington Wizards to be finalized on July 9 when the NBA’s moratorium is lifted.
Neal, an eight-year veteran, averaged 10.1 points in 22.1 minutes per game in 2014-15, while appearing in 54 games with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Charlotte Hornets.
He averages 9.9 points-per-game for his career and is known around the league as an efficient 3-point shooter. Over his career, Neal has shot 38.1 percent from beyond the arc.
During his time at Towson, Neal scored 1,234 points in less than two full seasons. He also broke 14 school records and is one of only two Tigers to score 40 or more points in a game twice in a career.
Neal was named to the All-Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) first team in his senior year and chosen to College Insider’s Mid-Major All-American team, the National Association of Basketball Coaches All-District first team, and the U.S. Basketball Writers’ all-district III team.
