Gary Neal – SA – sg
As an undrafted free agent, Neal made his NBA debut last season and quickly carved out his niche roll in the Spurs veteran lineup. As the top backup behind the somewhat injury prone Manu Ginobili, there is plenty of reason to believe that Neal will be able to tally 20-25 minutes per game this season. Unfortunately, Neal had to undergo an appendectomy on December 12th and will be forced to miss the first couple weeks of the season. However when he returns to the court, Neal should quickly find his place in the Spurs rotation.
