Free agent target No. 9: Raul Neto, Point Guard

Not being able to score is certainly a hindrance to a long NBA career, but point guard Raul Neto has managed to carve out a niche in the league despite his limited scoring abilities. The seven-year veteran is a tough defender, good facilitator and excellent teammate, which helps to offset his shaky perimeter shot and lack of on-ball creation skills.

The Brazilian guard first got his start in the league with the Utah Jazz, with Quin Snyder even giving him 53 starts as a rookie in 2015-16. He spent four years in Utah before he began to ping around the league, providing a steady hand and a defensive pest at the point of attack.

This season Neto has been the third point guard on the Cleveland Cavaliers, and he is a good candidate not to be retained as they look for a younger option for the spot. If so, the Atlanta Hawks are a logical landing spot. He can reunite with his former coach and fill the third point guard position.

This season that role was held by Aaron Holiday, who did very little of value with it. Neto could fill that spot and know exactly what Snyder wants from him.
