MILWAUKEE, Wis. - The Milwaukee Bucks signed former Towson men's basketball standout Gary Neal, the team announced today. Terms of the contract were not disclosed in accordance with team policy.

The 28-year-old guard played the last three seasons in the NBA for the San Antonio Spurs (2010-13), where he averaged 9.7 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 21.4 minutes per game. His .865 free throw percentage (64-74) during 2012-13 was a career and team high. In the 2013 NBA Playoffs, Neal and Danny Green became the first two teammates to make at least six three-pointers in the same Finals game. That 6-for-10 effort from behind the arc on June 11 vs. Miami was a career postseason high for him.

Neal played overseas in Italy, Spain and Turkey for three seasons prior to joining the NBA. He was a member of the Spurs 2010 Summer League team before earning a permanent spot on San Antonio’s roster. The Towson University product made an immediate impact during his first year, becoming just the second undrafted rookie in NBA history to earn All-Rookie First Team honors. He was also selected to play on the Rookie team in the 2011 Rookie Challenge during All-Star Weekend, becoming just the sixth undrafted rookie in NBA history to participate in that event. Additionally, Neal broke San Antonio’s rookie record for three-point field goal percentage (.419) and 3-point field goals made (129).

During his two seasons at Towson (2005-07), Neal tallied 1,254 points, 160 assists and shot 44.6 percent from the field. Neal averaged 25.6 points per game for his career, a mark that ranks as the best in Colonial Athletic Association history. Neal set Towson's single-season scoring record during the 2006-07 campaign in which he tallied a remarkable 810 points.
