agreed. it'd take a Manu to get him. he's been playing insane and rebounding like crazy. Gary Neal wouldn't get us anyone of significance. he's a decent backup 2 because Manu and Mills bail him out a lot on PG duties. there isn't a championship contender who'd trade an undersized SG to play that position, they'd want him to be the primary backup PG. we'd get nothing for him, not even a good 2nd rounder right now. Neal is over-hyped or given a lot of significance to this team by Spurs fans/SpursReporters. the only game he's gotten hot was the Sacramento game. other than that, Mills has outplayed him and it hasn't even been close.
