Pistons Trade Leuer To Bucks for Snell, Draft Pick
Just one day before the NBA Draft, the Detroit Pistons acquired guard Tony Snell (pictured) from the Milwaukee Bucks in exchange for forward Jon Leuer. The Pistons also get the 30th overall selection in Thursday night's NBA Draft. This is according to ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski.
This move gives the Pistons an extra draft choice, plus a player that should fit in to the current rotation for the team. Detroit now has the 15th and 30th picks in the first round, as well as the 45th pick in the second round.
Snell is scheduled to make $11.4 million in the 2019-20 season, he has a $12.2 million player option for the following season. Leuer never fit in to the Pistons rotation, largely because of injuries. He will make $9.5 million next season, the final year of his four-year deal.
