“Derrick’s voice (also) means so much to this team,” said Noah of another of his teammates who now knows misfortune and about being dismissed. “I see him talk to Jimmy Butler during a game, to Tony Snell. He talks to me all the time. It gives us confidence. He has that much impact on this tam. His words go a long way. He’s our star player and a good dude. That’s why it’s so hard to see him go down again. But he’s a warrior. He never lets up. The way he’s working now you know our time will come.”
What kind of trade could the two teams pull off? With Turner making just over $6 million this season, it’s hard to see a player on the Bulls who could be traded straight up and work under the cap. One possibility is a package involving Kirk Hinrich and Tony Snell, which would work financially. The Bulls might be willing to include a first round pick, since they are clearly a team trying to win now. It is also possible a third-team could get involved.
The Chicago Bulls announced today the signing of 2013 NBA draft picks Tony Snell (20th overall) and Erik Murphy (49th overall). Per team policy, terms of the contracts were not disclosed. Snell, a 6-7, 200-pound guard out of the University of New Mexico, joins the Bulls after wrapping up a three-year collegiate career with the Lobos. A native of Riverside, Calif., Snell appeared in 104 games (77 starts) where he averaged 9.2 ppg, 2.4 rpg, 2.0 apg and 0.50 spg in 24.8 mpg. He also shot .421 from the field, .380 from behind the arc and .821 from the line.
The Sacramento Kings are looking to acquire a second first-round pick and are using guard Jimmer Fredette as bait. Sources say the Kings have reached out to a number of teams in the mid-to-late first round in an attempt to secure another pick. Both the Indiana Pacers and Utah Jazz are potential destinations for Jimmer. Kings coach Mike Malone is enamored with both Tim Hardaway Jr. and Tony Snell, but the Kings feel that they can get them much lower in the draft.
However, his demeanor on Thursday was night and day compared to his appearance in Sacramento 11 days ago. Snell appeared more confident and relaxed in his session with the media this time around. Following yesterday’s workout, new Kings coach Michael Malone took some time to speak one-on-one with Snell. Malone said afterwards he made a point to assure Snell of the Kings’ interest. “I just told him when you have guys back here for a second time, we’re not bringing guys back in that we don’t like,” Malone said yesterday. ”So Tony had a very good career at New Mexico and he’s played very well for us in the two times he’s been here.”
Tony Snell appears to have made an impression on the Sacramento Kings. With the NBA Draft now a week away, the 21-year-old wing returned to the capital city yesterday for another pre-draft workout before Kings decision- makers. “I was a little surprised, but I was happy at the same time,” Snell said of his second audition with Sacramento. “That means I did something good in the first workout so I tried to prove myself again today.” According to the former New Mexico wing, there wasn’t much different between this Kings workout versus his first.
