Bulls Reportedly Trading Tony Snell To The Bucks For Michael Carter-Williams

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.

From ESPN:

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.
