2013 NBA Draft: Chicago Bulls Select Tony Snell With No.20 Pick
Position: Small Forward
School/Country: New Mexico
About the Prospect:
New Mexico small forward Tony Snell has made the decision to forgo his final year of collegiate eligibility and declare for the 2013 NBA Draft. At 6-foot-7, Snell has decent size for the wing position and his athleticism allows him to take his talents to the next level. Snell showed the ability to turn things up at various moments, going off for 25+ on three separate occasions. Snell boosted his potential right from the get-go this season, as two of those three 25+ point performances came in the Lobos’ first three contests this past season. Snell can penetrate and get to the basket, but he is very comfortable in catching and spotting up for three.
About His Impact on Team: The Bulls are notorious for drafting project players and Snell is no different. A small forward by nature, the Bulls could try and change Snell into a two guard, but the slasher is a perfect fit for the up-and-coming Bulls. Chicago doesn’t really need another wingman, yet the constant Luol Deng trade talks could mean that Snell will have a bigger impact in 2013. Not to mention, Snell will have a role model in Jimmy Butler who is a defensive stopper for the Bulls in just his sophomore year — these two could combine and make a few All-Star teams as hard-nosed teammates.
