The Milwaukee Bucks have re-signed restricted free agent guard Tony Snell. Terms of the contract were not disclosed in accordance with team policy.
“I’m grateful to the Bucks ownership and everyone in the organization for believing in me,” Snell said. “We’re building something special here and I’m fortunate to work with great coaches and teammates. I can’t wait to get the season started and continue our positive momentum from last season.”
Henson has three years remaining on his contract, starting at $11.4M next season and $10.6M and $9.7M the following two seasons. An indication the Bucks are still exploring their trade options is the status of Tony Snell’s contract. Snell and the Bucks agreed to a four-year, $44M deal at the start of free agency when the swingman became an unrestricted free agent. But sources said the contract has yet to be submitted to the league office in New York.

Barring a massive offer sheet, I'd expect Milwaukee to re-sign Tony Snell for something in the $10-12 million range -- a move that would nudge them right up against the tax. Milwaukee could waive Spencer Hawes with the stretch provision, but even then, they still might dangle John Henson and Mirza Teletovic.
Wojnarowski suggests that Tony Snell may be a popular restricted free agent this summer, since teams may feel like they can put pressure on the Bucks, who won’t want to approach tax territory. An annual salary in the $11-13MM range is within range for Snell, says Wojnarowski.
General manager John Hammond said Thursday the Bucks plan to have Snell on the roster next season. Milwaukee can match any offer sheet signed by Snell, who averaged 8.5 points per game, shot 40.6 percent on 3-point attempts and provided Milwaukee with a strong wing defender.
”He’s an outstanding guy and a guy we want to have as part of our team moving forward,” Hammond said. ”He’s about the right things. I think Tony wants to be here. We’re hoping to bring him back. We’re planning on him being with us next season.”
