Kings have interest in Bucks' guard Gary Neal?

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The Kings are apparently going after anyone and everyone before the trade deadline.

With the deadline less than 24 hours away, the Kings are continuing to remain active even after completing the Marcus Thornton to Brooklyn trade.

The latest rumor has the Kings interested in Bucks swingman Gary Neal:

Neal signed a 2 year, $6.5 million contract this summer with Milwaukee as the Bucks were seemingly trying to chase a playoff spot, but with those hopes utterly dashed, Neal is now on the market.  Neal is currently averaging 10 points a game on 39% shooting so he's obviously a hot commodity.

The Kings interest may have been before the Thornton deal went down because as of now I just don't see a trade here.  The Kings won't trade Jimmer for Neal because that adds salary for next season, something that they don't want to do in the face of a possible luxury tax bill (even without signing Isaiah they'll be close to it if Rudy opts in).  The Bucks also wouldn't be taking Thompson or Landry since they 1) don't need any more frontcourt players and 2) don't want to clog up future cap space more than necessary.
