With the season almost upon us, teams are looking to finalize their rosters. The Bulls and the Bucks made a big step towards that when they agreed to a big trade around former Rookie of the Year Michael Carter-Williams.
According to ESPN’s Jeff Goodman, the Bucks will send Carter-Williams to act as Rajon Rondo’s back up, while Chicago will send Tony Snell to Milwaukee to provided some needed perimeter shooting after Khris Middleton’s injury.
Last season, Carter-Williams averaged a decent line of 11.5 points, 5.1 rebounds, 5.2 assists, and 1.5 steals, while Snell was much quieter with just 5.3 points and 3.1 rebounds in 20.3 minutes per game.
The Bucks are clearly interested in Snell’s ability to score from the outside since they already have Giannis Antetokounmpo manning the point guard spot, with Matthew Dellavedova as a backup.
