After a big loss to the Phoenix Suns Saturday night, Milwaukee BucksGary Neal reportedly got into a bit of an argument with teammate Larry Sanders. Coming out of the locker room, we found out that Neal apparently told Sanders he should try earning his money because Neal had earned his during the loss. Just a couple days later, rumors are starting to come out he could be moved before the trade deadline.

Marc Stein of ESPN.com reported the Bucks are looking to do everything they can to move Neal in a trade by the February 20 trade deadline.

The Bucks have been by far the worst team in the NBA this season at just 7-26. No other team in the league still has single-digit wins on the season. Neal is averaging 10.4 points and 1.6 assists in 20.5 minutes. He's started two of the 23 games he's played in for the Bucks this season. Neal has made 39.4 percent of his field goals and 41.9 percent of his 3-pointers.

He signed with the Bucks this past summer for two years and $6.5 million after spending three seasons with the San Antonio Spurs.
