Neal is always looking to shoot. Always. That's his flaw, well, that and his poor D. He very frequently pulls up for a mid range contested jumper in the half court set rather than making the extra pass. If someone sets a screen for him, he's gonna pull up and shoot on the other side every time. He's one dimensional. If you watch Tony, someone sets a screen and he'll pull up, drive and layup, drive and floater, drive and kick, step back and reverse the ball, or step back and feed the picker on the roll. Recognizing these multiple options is just not in Neal's skill set. His role needs to be more Bowen, Jarren Jackson, Kerr on offense as a spot up guy only. Just sit and wait and let the game come to him. On D he could afford to take some lessons from a pylon.
