After missing out on multiple restricted free agents last offseason, the Nets would spend the rest of the summer filling out their roster with under the radar free agents, will the Nets do the same this year and look to sign swingman Tony Snell?
This offseason is an important one for the Brooklyn Nets. Management must find players that will fit the long-term goals of the team while maintaining a competitive edge for this upcoming season. Remember, the Nets still owe one more draft choice to the Boston Celtics.
Last offseason, it became clear what exactly Sean Marks was going to do in order to help the Brooklyn Nets franchise regain respectability. Marks would look to find players who were not highly thought of by others, while also making lucrative offers for restricted free agents. One year later, there are plenty of players hitting the free agency market who fit the mold of both of those things. One of those players is none other than 6’7 Swingman, Tony Snell.
After 3 years with the Chicago Bulls, Snell found himself donning green and white Milwaukee Bucks attire after being traded for 2014 Rookie of the year, and a fellow member of the 2013 NBA Draft class, Michael Carter-Williams.
Now in 2017, Snell is heading into free agency as a restricted free agent and coming off his rookie contract. After a season in which he averaged 8.5 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 80 games for Milwaukee, it seems apparent Tony Snell wants to finally find a place he can fit and get the most production out of himself while also receiving a bit of a pay day. After a season in which the team went 20-62, can Brooklyn be that place?
