I never figured Neal to be a part of the team's long term plans. This is simply a move to make room on the roster. They can still perform a sign and trade much like with Blair. It will be interesting to see what happens next. It was surprising that this was decided now prior to any news on Oden. Hopefully we can get something going in the form of a trade for Neal and Blair even though they will not be back with us.
