Bulls finalize deal to acquire Michael Carter-Williams from Bucks


The Bulls finalized a deal Monday morning that sent Tony Snell to the Milwaukee Bucks in exchange for point guard Michael Carter-Williams.

Carter-Williams, who turned 25 last week, averaged 11.5 points, 5.1 rebounds and 5.2 assists in 54 games for the Bucks last season.

"We're excited to add Michael to our roster," Gar Forman said in a press release. "He is a two-way player who adds versatility and depth to our backcourt rotation."

Carter-Williams is expected to slot in behind Rajon Rondo on the depth chart, while Jerian Grant and Spencer Dinwiddie battle for third-string duties.

Snell, who the Bulls selected 20th overall in the 2013 NBA Draft, averaged 5.3 points on 39.6 percent shooting in 213 career games for the Bulls.
