The Charlotte Bobcats have acquired guards Luke Ridnour and Gary Neal from the Milwaukee Bucks in exchange for guard Ramon Sessions and forward Jeff Adrien just hours before the NBA trade deadline Thursday, both teams announced.
The trade is expected to give Charlotte's outside shooting a boost as the Bobcats make a push for the playoffs.
Neal, a career 43 percent 3-point shooter, should help a team that lacks a true shooting guard. Session was a valuable backup point guard for Charlotte but Ridnour should help to fill that void.
Neal spent three seasons with the San Antonio Spurs before signing this past offseason with the Bucks as a free agent. He's averaging 10 points per game and shooting 39 percent from 3-point range.
