Charlotte, N.C. • The Charlotte Bobcats acquired guards Luke Ridnour and Gary Neal from the Milwaukee Bucks in exchange for guard Ramon Sessions and forward Jeff Adrien on Thursday, according to two people familiar with the situation.
The people spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the trade has yet to be approved by the league.
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.
