Milwaukee Bucks Rumors
Tony Snell hasn’t even been in Milwaukee for a week, but sources maintain that an extension before the Oct. 31 deadline for Class of 2013 draftees is indeed a possibility for Snell.
Q: With Jason Kidd as your coach, you’re getting a chance to play for one of the game’s great point guards. What kind of relationship do the two of you have? Matthew Dellavedova: We’re just getting to know each other. He’s been offering tips on what he sees out there. There’s no better [situation] as a point guard as having a coach that played the same position at the highest level for a long, long time. It’s been great so far, and we’re looking forward to the season. Q: Has he given you specific pointers, or is it more general advice? Matthew Dellavedova: It’s been general, about leading guys and things like that. On the court, different passes or pushing the break. He also brought John Stockton into training camp, so it was really cool to be able to ask him some questions as well.
Q: You get to play with another Australian in rookie big man Thon Maker. What are your early impressions of him? Matthew Dellavedova: He really impresses me as aggressive on the offensive boards. He’s a great athlete, and he has a great shooting touch as well. He needs to get stronger and put on a little bit of weight, but with how hard he works and how hard he plays, I think he’s got all the potential as well. I think he will be a great player.
