Milwaukee Bucks

In this straight swap, the Charlotte Hornets add a “3&D” guy in Tony Snell, who has been losing minutes this season with the Milwaukee Bucks.

Snell is only 27-years old, and has shown during his career that he can play his role very well. He’s a really good three-point shooter, a good defensive player and he doesn’t complain about his role. He still has upside, and a move to Charlotte may unlock some of that upside he possesses.

Could a change of scenery open some doors for Snell? I think so. His minutes have dropped from 27.4 last season to 15.8 this season.

With Marvin going to Milwaukee, the Hornets could move Michael Kidd-Gilchrist into the starting lineup, giving them that defender the starting unit lacks. Snell could come off the bench and be a deadly shooter for this group. He’s versatile as well, so he can play some different positions on the court.

It may not be the sexiest trade, but with the Bucks being a legit contender in the Eastern Conference this season, I don’t see them making a major move. You never want to mess up any sort of chemistry that has been developed. But, with this being more of an under-the-radar type of move, maybe it would work for both sides.
