Gary Neal agreed to play for Benetton
Gary Neal (1.93-PG/SG), one of the 3 wonders of Karsiyaka last year, agreed to wear the shirt of Benetton Treviso for next year. The american combo guard had an offer from Turk Telekom that is rumored to be around 600.000 dollars per year but he preferred to sign with Benetton.
Neal is an excellent scorer and an avid 3-point shooter. In Karsiyaka he averaged 23.6 points 5.2 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game in 19 games of the turkish league, shooting at 43.8% behind the arc, before moving to Barcelona. This is a great move from Benetton after losing the bidding war on Dashaun Wood.
