The Milwaukee Bucks have re-signed restricted free agent guard Tony Snell.
“Tony was an integral part of our team’s improvement last season and we’re excited to re-sign him,” said General Manager Jon Horst. “He is a tireless worker, a terrific teammate and a man of great character. We look forward to having him back with the Bucks as we continue to build toward a championship.”
Snell had the best season of his four-year NBA career in 2016-17, his first with the Bucks. He set new career highs in points (8.5), rebounds (3.1), assists (1.2) and minutes (29.2) per game while playing and starting a career high 80 games. Snell also set new personal bests in 3-point percentage (.406) and field goal percentage (.455) during the 2016-17 season after he was acquired by the Bucks in October.
The 6’7 guard has career averages of 6.2 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 21.4 minutes per game. He was originally drafted with the 20th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft by the Chicago Bulls out of New Mexico.
