Pistons get 30th pick, Snell from Bucks for Leuer

Pistons get 30th pick, Snell from Bucks for Leuer

The Bucks may look to waive or unload Leuer to carve out more cap room this summer but could even incorporate the hustle big into their rotation if unsuccessful.

The Pistons, for now, have the 15th, 30th and 45th selections.

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard 'rejects approach' from Derby County
After a loan spell with Reims last season, Sheyi Ojo will team up with Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard at Rangers for the 2019-20 campaign.

Obviously, getting the No. 30 overall pick from the Bucks is the reason Detroit made this deal. "Bucks saved $4M in salary this year, and won't have Snell's $12M in salary on books for 2020-21".

As a deep reserve off Dwane Casey's bench, the 30-year-old averaged 3.8 points and 2.4 rebounds in just under 10 minutes per appearance this past season. It doesn't much matter that Snell was a serviceable role player for the Bucks a year ago and shot 40 percent from behind the 3-point line while playing in each of the first 74 games of the season before suffering a left ankle injury with just a few weeks left in the regular season. In 442 career National Basketball Association games (218 starts), he's averaged 6.2 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 21.8 minutes with the Bulls and Bucks. While they managed to make the playoffs last season, a quick exit in the first round to the Bucks was proof that they're still a work in progress.
