2020 Fantasy Outlook
Snell will join the Hawks rotation after recently being dealt from Detroit, where he spent just one season. With the Pistons, the 29-year-old averaged 8.0 points, 1.9 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.7 three pointers on 40.2 percent. Snell joins a fairly crowded wing rotation in Atlanta that doesn't particularly feature any standout players. He'll bring some veteran savvy to the otherwise young wing group, but he wouldn't figure to get heavy minutes during the 2020-21 campaign, with the team likely still rebuilding. The 6-foot-6 forward has shot at least 40 percent from downtown in three of the last four seasons, so based on the accurate shooting and his veteran presence, he should carve out a decent role on this roster.

Snell (ankle) is no longer on the injury report ahead of Monday's game against the Blazers, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
An ankle injury sidelined Snell for most of April, but he made his return Friday against Philadelphia and also played in Saturday's win over the Bulls. Snell was questionable as of Monday morning, but he's since been cleared and looks to be nearing full health. It's unclear if Snell will remain in the starting five going forward or if the Hawks will pivot back to Kevin Huerter, who returned from a shoulder injury Saturday.

Past Season Summaries
2019

The coronavirus-shortened 2019-20 season was Snell's seventh year in the Association and his first in Detroit. He appeared in 59 out of a possible 66 games for the Pistons, with 57 starts. The wing averaged 8.0 points, a career-best 2.2 assists, 1.9 rebounds and 0.5 steals across 27.8 minutes per game. He also shot 40.2 percent from three, nailed 1.7 three-pointers a game and hit a perfect 32-of-32 free throw attempts. During a Nov. 6 home win over the Knicks, Snell generated a season-high 24 points via a perfect 9-for-9 from the field, which included a season-high six three-pointers. On Jan. 18, the versatile wing block a career-best three shots and added eight points during a win at Atlanta. On Feb. 25, Snell dished a career-high seven assists to go with 10 points during a loss at Denver. Snell scored in double-digits 21 times, grabbed at least five rebounds twice and dished at least five assists seven times. He hit at least four threes six times. In the 27 games that Snell saw at least 30 minutes, he averaged 10.5 points, 2.8 assists and 2.2 rebounds per contest. Snell's longest streak of double-digit points was five games from Nov. 2 through Nov. 11 during which he averaged 14.4 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 32.2 minutes per game.

2018

In the 2018-19 season, Tony Snell transitioned to a bench role after starting all but 16 of the games in which he played during his first two campaigns with Milwaukee. Despite the reduction in playing time, the wingman's numbers held steady as his per-game contributions -- 6.0 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.1 threes -- were in line with his production in 2017-18. A peek at his advanced stats suggests that coming off the bench suited Snell just fine, as his 12.3 points per 36 minutes and 10.7 Player Efficiency Rating were the highest marks of his career. Snell's best offensive stretch came during a three-game span in mid-December when he averaged 13.3 points on 15-of-20 shooting -- including 8-of-12 from deep -- in a trio of Bucks wins. Snell has been reliably accurate from three-point range with a conversion rate of 40.3 percent over the last three seasons. In fact, the long-range game is Snell's bread and butter. Over the course of his career, 57 percent of his shots have come from behind the arc. The sharpshooter suffered a sprained left ankle in late March that sidelined him for the remainder of the regular season and the first two games of the playoffs. When he returned midway through Milwaukee's first-round series against Detroit, he saw limited playing time.

2017

Snell appeared in 75 games for the Bucks in 2017-18, his second season with the team and fifth in the NBA. He started 59 games, averaging 6.9 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.3 assists. Snell scored in double figures on 22 occasions. The Los Angeles native scored a season-high 18 points against his former team, the Bulls, on March 23. A dangerous outside shooter, Snell hit 40.3 percent from downtown. This marked his second straight year shooting over 40 percent from three-point range, and he was one of only 31 players to hit that mark for the campaign. As part of that feat, Snell connected on at least three treys in nine contests. His season best from beyond the arc came at Charlotte on Nov. 1, when he drained 5-of-6. He also appeared in all seven games for the Bucks against the Celtics in Round 1 of the playoffs.

2016

In his fourth NBA season, Snell appeared in a career-high 80 games (80 starts) for the Bucks. In a career-best 29.2 minutes per game, Snell averaged 8.5 points (also a career high), 3.1 rebounds and 1.2 assists. Snell also shot career bests from both the field (45.5 percent) and from downtown (40.6 percent). In a Nov. 1 win over New Orleans, Snell posted 13 points and 10 rebounds for his lone double-double of the season. He topped 20 points three times, including posting a season-high 26 points in a March 28 win over Charlotte. Snell knocked down six of his 11 three-point attempts en route to 20 points in a loss to Washington on Dec. 26. He notched a season-high three steals against Oklahoma City on April 4. In the postseason, Snell started all six of Milwaukee's first-round games against Toronto. In Game 4, Snell recorded a playoff-career-high 19 points while knocking down 5-of-10 three-point attempts.

2015

In his third season with the Bulls, Snell appeared in 64 games and made 33 starts, while averaging 20.3 minutes per game. He translated that to 5.3 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.0 assist per contest. Snell scored in double-figures 12 times, topping out with 22 points (8-14 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) in a win over Toronto on Dec. 28. He started on Opening Night against Cleveland and posted 11 points and two rebounds in 29 minutes. Snell notched a double-double in a win over Philadelphia on Dec. 14, finishing with 16 points, 11 rebounds, two steals and one assist. In a loss to Milwaukee on Jan. 12, Snell had 17 points, seven rebounds, one assist and one steal. Snell recorded a season-high two blocks in a Dec. 30 win over the Pacers. The New Mexico product knocked down a season-high four three-pointers on three different occasions, including in a win over Washington on Feb. 24, when he also added four rebounds and three assists.

2014

In his second NBA season, Snell appeared in 72 games for Chicago, making 22 starts and averaging 19.6 minutes per contest. He averaged then-career-highs in scoring (6.0 ppg), rebounds (2.4 rpg) and made threes (1.0 3PM) per game. Snell also posted career-high shooting marks across the board, hitting 42.9 percent of his field goals, 37.1 percent of his threes and 80.0 percent of his free throws. After beginning the year in a bench role, Snell made his first start of the season on Jan. 10 against Milwaukee, finishing with two points, six rebounds, two assists and a block. On the season, Snell scored at least 20 points four times, topping out with 24 points (9-11 FG) in a win over the Kings on Feb. 10. Against Cleveland on Feb. 12, Snell had 22 points, two rebounds, three steals and one assist. He hit at least four three-pointers in six different games. In a win over New Orleans on Feb. 7, Snell put up 19 points (5-6 3Pt) and five rebounds in 29 minutes. He recorded his lone double-double of the season (10 points, 10 rebounds) in a Mar. 11 win over Philadelphia. In the postseason, Snell appeared in 11 of 12 games as the Bulls advanced to the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Snell posted 16 points on 5-of-9 shooting (4-8 3PT) in a Game 3 win over Milwaukee in Round 1.

2013

A rookie out of New Mexico, Snell made an immediate impact for the Bulls, appearing in 77 games and making 12 starts. The 20th overall pick averaged 4.5 points, 1.6 rebounds, 0.9 assists and 0.7 three-pointers in 16.0 minutes per game. He made his NBA debut on opening night against Miami, coming off the bench to finish with one steal in seven minutes of action. Snell scored his first NBA points against Toronto on Nov. 15, when he hit a pair of free throws late in a 16-point Bulls' win. On Nov. 25 in Utah, Snell made his first career NBA start. He finished with nine points in 26 minutes. In Detroit two nights later, Snell scored in double figures for the first time, posting 13 points (3-5 3Pt), three assists, two rebounds and two steals in 37 minutes. Later in the season, on Feb. 21 against Denver, Snell established a career high with 20 points on 7-of-14 shooting. The Los Angeles native hit a career-best five three-pointers in a win over the Cavs on Dec. 21. He appeared off the bench in all five of the Bulls' first-round playoff games against Washington, totaling four points, six rebounds and two assists for the series.

Snell joins Detroit after being traded from Milwaukee in the offseason. He averaged 6.0 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 17.6 minutes per contest in 2018-19, marking his fewest minutes since his rookie season. His role was reduced on a loaded Milwaukee team, but Snell will compete for a starting job in Detroit this season, playing with a less talented group. His three-point shooting (37.9 percent career) should be valuable to a Pistons team that lacked in that department a season ago. Snell doesn't offer much on the defensive end of the court, and he'll likely be a low-usage option on offense even if he sees his way to starter's minutes. Snell is highly unlikely to be fantasy relevant this season, even in deeper formats.
Snell saw his workload dip from 29.2 minutes to 27.4 minutes per game last season, which entailed a downturn in scoring, from 8.5 points to 6.9 points per game. That wasn't a result of poor three-point shooting, however, as he drilled 40.3 percent of his looks from distance. Considering the presence of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton, as well as second-year wing Sterling Brown, it will remain difficult for Snell to see increased run. Fom a Fantasy perspective, Snell is essentially a points/threes specialist, and he doesn't provide either at great volume. As such, once again, Snell can mostly be avoided come draft day.
Snell became a legitimate starter for the first time in his four-year career last season, joining the Bucks’ starting five for all 80 games he participated in. While he didn’t post eye-popping numbers, he excelled in his role as a three-and-D wing and earned a four-year, $46 million contract with the Bucks over the summer. Not much of an inside scorer, Snell took 65.6 percent of his shots from beyond the arc, hitting them at a 40.6 percent. Though his role on the Bucks is significant, it doesn’t translate particularly well to counting stats, as Snell averaged just 8.5 points, 3.1 boards and 1.2 assists across his 29.2 minutes per game. Milwaukee has made few changes to their wing depth heading into the 2017-18 campaign, nearly ensuring Snell will see a similar workload. Considering he’s just 25-years-old, Snell should make some improvements to his game, though it would be surprising if he took a major leap. For that reason, Snell isn’t a particularly enticing Fantasy option and can likely be ignored in many formats, despite being a probable starter.
Snell took a step back in his third NBA season, averaging just 5.3 points and 3.1 rebounds per game and falling out of the rotation by season's end. The former first-round pick began the year as a starter, but his offensive struggles forced coach Fred Hoiberg to make a change, and Snell moved in and out of the starting lineup from December through February. Eventually, he was removed from the rotation altogether, racking up 16 DNP-CDs over the Bulls' final 22 games. While he's a versatile perimeter defender, Snell shot just 37.2 percent from the floor on the season. He knocked down a respectable 36.1 percent of his three-point attempts, but struggled in catch-and-shoot situations, hitting only 30.6 percent of his corner three-point looks, down more than 10 points from a season ago. Entering 2016-17, Snell could again have a difficult time carving out a regular role off the bench. Dwyane Wade will command a significant workload at shooting guard, while the addition of rookie Denzel Valentine presents another obstacle. Snell has also seemingly been passed up by Doug McDermott, so he's best left untouched in most fantasy formats.
Snell saw a slight increase in playing time in his second year in the league as he started 22 of the 72 games he played. He averaged 6.0 points, 2.4 rebounds, 0.9 assists, 0.4 steals, 0.2 blocks, and 1.0 three-pointer in 20 minutes per game. Snell improved his percentages across the board from his rookie season as he shot 43 percent from the field, 80 percent from the charity stripe, and 37 percent from behind the arc. He's a very good defender, and his ability to shoot from behind the arc makes him a valuable player to have out on the floor. The problem for Snell is that the Bulls already have Jimmy Butler, who has a similar skill set to Snell but excels in those areas much more than Snell does. There were calls last season for Snell to see increased playing time over veteran Kirk Hinrich, but former coach Tom Thibodeau stuck with his veteran on most nights. Butler will still eat up a lot of minutes, but Snell could see increased opportunities under new coach Fred Hoiberg.
Snell is entering his second season in the NBA after a quiet rookie year. The swingman averaged 4.5 points, 1.6 rebounds, 0.9 assists, 0.4 steals, and 0.2 blocks in 16 minutes per game while making 77 appearances last season. He struggled offensively, shooting just 38 percent from the field and 32 percent from behind the arc, both significant drop-offs from his final season at New Mexico. Snell looked much more confident in his second go-round at the Las Vegas Summer League, notching First-Team All-Summer League honors while averaging 20 points per game. The rangy Snell should see a spike in playing time with a year's worth of experience under his belt, just as Jimmy Butler did after one season under coach Tom Thibodeau. Unfortunately for Snell, one of the Bulls' bigger issues this season will be finding enough minutes to go around for their reserve players. With Mike Dunleavy and Butler returning, Snell will be hard-pressed to see a major jump in playing time, which will keep him from attaining any real fantasy value outside of deeper leagues.
