Milwaukee Bucks trade Tony Snell to Detroit Pistons for Jon Leuer

Tony Snell, Bucks

The Milwaukee Bucks have been searching to make a trade this offseason and were finally able to get something done late Wednesday evening. After reports came out that the team was looking to deal either Tony Snell or Ersan Ilyasova to create some cap room, they were able to move on from Snell.

According to a report from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Bucks have agreed to a deal that will send forward Tony Snell and the No. 30 overall pick to the Detroit Pistons in exchange for Jon Leuer.

This is a very interesting deal for both parties. Snell has been decent in limited minutes during his time with the Bucks, although it seems unlikely that he will be able to get any kind of major role in Detroit. Leuer is a big man who has traveled quite a bit throughout his NBA career, but doesn’t seem to be the kind of guy that will stick with Milwaukee for too long.

Last season with the Bucks, Snell ended up playing in 74 games, averaging 17.6 minutes per game. He averaged 6.0 points and 2.1 rebounds per game.

Leuer, on the other hand, only played in 41 games for the Pistons and was not an impact player at all.

Wojnarowski shared more information about why the trade was made for both teams.

Obviously, getting the No. 30 overall pick from the Bucks is the reason Detroit made this deal. They likely won’t get anyone special with that selection, but there are some solid talents that will be available.
