Bucks reportedly trade Snell to Pistons for Leuer

MILWAUKEE (WKOW) — The Bucks have created some cap space by reportedly trading Tony Snell and the 30th overall pick to the Detroit Pistons for Jon Leuer. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski first broke the news late Wednesday night.


According to Wojnarowski, the Bucks will save approximately $4 million in cap space this upcoming season. They could also save roughly $12 million next season by shedding Snell’s contract. That will allow them more financial flexibility as they attempt to sign their pending free agents such as Khris Middleton, Malcolm Brogdon and Brook Lopez.

Leuer is headed back to the team that drafted him in the second round in 2011. The former Badgers big man averaged 3.8 points and 2.4 rebounds this past season with the Pistons.
