I think it's a pretty solid deal for Charlotte. Gotta feel bad for Sessions though.

ESPN has learned deal will send Luke Ridnour and Gary Neal to Charlotte for Ramon Sessions and Jeff Adrien

As a Magic fan rooting against the Knicks to make the playoffs, I like this a good bit. Hopefully they, Detroit, Cleveland and everyone else in the playoffs currently can stay ahead of NYK. This should help a tad.

Good move. Don't know what it does for Milwaukee though. Sessions returns to his old stomping grounds though.

Saves Milwaukee some money, and eliminates issues Neal has with others in the locker room.

Not really. Ridnour and Neal are both expirings. Adrian has no value.

It's a completely lateral move. I don't quite get it either, but whatever.

Oops. Good call.

Never mind then.

Why are you rooting against the Knicks?

How do you like it for Charlotte? I'd imagine Ridnour will simply replace Sessions but where does Neal fit?
Any idea why he had issues in the locker room?

Why can't Sessions find a home? He's good.

Neal fits because Sessions was our first point guard off the bench and our first shooting guard off the bench. A normal game would see Sessions replace Henderson at shooting guard, and then Sessions slid to point when Kemba went out. This gives us loads more versatility having legit reserves at both positions.

And reports are Neal told Larry Sanders to start earning his money. Didn't go over well.

I like the deal a lot. Neal and Ridnour both will benefit from going from the worst team in the NBA to a team with a playoff shot.

EDIT: Also, Neal provides some three point shooting which we need badly.

I like this for Charlotte. Honestly think Dubs could have snatched Neal and Ridnour if they hadn't gone after Blake.

Has Neal spoken about the trade yet? I wonder how he feels about it.

Denver currently has the knicks pick , but Orlando gets the less favorable of the Knicks/Nuggets pick this year. If the Knicks miss the playoffs , then we are guranteed a lottery pick

Neal's numbers are down but the guy is a baller. Bucks is just a loser organization. I would hate to be in that cesspool after going to the finals the previous year.

LOL He signed with the Bucks so it's not like he was forced to be a part of their organization.

Guy wants to get paid. Sometimes you have to sacrifice a good job for a shi..tty job with a better pay structure. Nothing wrong with looking out for number one. Bucks was just shi..ttier than he thought it would be. The bucks aren't going to get better even if they could draft all top 5 picks. They just suck.
