McNeal, 25, is a two-time D-League All-Star. He has spent time in NBA training camps with the Houston Rockets, Toronto Raptors, Los Angeles Clippers and New Orleans Hornets.

McNeal spent 10 days on the regular-season roster of the Hornets in 2011, but did not play in any games.

A Chicago native, McNeal played four seasons at Marquette. He is the school’s all-time leading scorer. He played in 130 games, which is also a Marquette record.

McNeal becomes the 10th D-League call-up in Jazz history, following Travis Leslie earlier in March. He will wear No. 23 with the Jazz.
