We have an NBA trade.
According to multiple reports, and confirmed by ESPN this morning, the Chicago Bulls are trading Tony Snell to the Milwaukee Bucks for Michael Carter-Williams. Both players are former first-round picks. Snell was the No. 20 pick in the 2013 NBA Draft while Carter-Williams was the No. 11 pick in the same draft.
Sources said the Bucks, who have been openly looking for more shooting and defense on the perimeter in the wake of a long-term injury suffered by starter Khris Middleton just days before training camp, have targeted Snell to give them some much-needed help on the wing.
Snell, a 6-foot-7 wing, averaged 5 points, 3 rebounds and 1 assist per game for the Bulls in 2015-16. Carter-Williams, a 6-foot-6 point guard, averaged 11 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists per game for the Bucks last season.
The 2016-17 NBA regular season starts next week.
