Trade grades: What the Snell deal means for the Bucks in free agency

Benny Sieu/USA TODAY Sports

With three starters hitting free agency this summer, the Milwaukee Bucks' roster is about to get much pricier. There have been rumblings in recent days that Milwaukee would use this year's first-round pick to shed salary, and the Bucks ended up doing just that in this trade with the Detroit Pistons, saving at least $4 million in 2019-20 salary and more than that in 2020-21.

The deal

Bucks get: Jon Leuer

Pistons get: Tony Snell, 2019 No. 30 pick
