Tony Snell to re-sign with Bucks for 4-years, $46 million

Limited Youth Will Clarke Jersey Tony Snell has agreed to return to the Milwaukee Bucks for 4-years, $46 million according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. $44 million of that is guaranteed and Snell will have a player option after the 3rd year. Tony Snell’s deal was one of the first to come in when the free agency started at midnight on July 1.

Tony Snell came to the Bucks in the 2016-2017 season in a trade with the Bulls that sent Michael Carter-Williams to Chicago. Snell was selected 20th overall by Chicago in 2013 Draft. At 25-years old, Snell’s season with the Bucks was his best yet. He he averaged 8.5 points while shooting 45.6 percent behind the three-point line.

The Bucks have a promising future, after pushing the Raptors to their limits in the 2017 playoffs and building their core around Giannis Antetokounmpo. Snell should continue to be a solid bench piece for this young and exciting team.

Gay at No. 3 coming off a ruptured Achilles shows you how shallow the small forward position will be in this market, especially considering Porter’s restricted status. But Gay is an impressive old-school scorer who was decently efficient playing off DeMarcus Cousins in Sacramento. He’s no stopper on defense, but he’s better than most give him credit for being. He is a stopper — a ball-stopper — on offense, though. That means fit is incredibly important.

Limited Youth Michael Wilhoite Jersey Gay would be a nice reserve scorer if a team has salary flexibility to slot him in that role and he embraces it.

The system is not working as intended because players — shocker! — value freedom of movement over getting slightly richer. The Wizards offered John Wall a supermax extension, but he didn’t sign it immediately because he wants to make sure the Wizards can bring him the championship mix he seeks. The threat of Westbrook passing on the big payday convinced the Thunder to make the blockbuster deal for George. The Pacers didn’t take the chance that George would make all-NBA this year because they knew he’d bolt anyway. The Kings and Bulls got cold feet about giving DeMarcus Cousins and Jimmy Butler all that money.
