Bucks re-sign guard Snell

The Milwaukee Bucks made it official Monday, announcing that they have re-signed restricted free agent Tony Snell.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, although it was reported earlier this month that the contract is a four-year deal worth up to $46 million, while the fourth year is a player option.

“Tony was an integral part of our team’s improvement last season and we’re excited to re-sign him,” Bucks GM Jon Horst said in a statement. “He is a tireless worker, a terrific teammate and a man of great character.”

Snell started 80 games for the Bucks last season, averaging 8.5 points and shooting 45 percent from the field — both career bests. He spent his first three seasons with Chicago, playing mostly in a reserve role.

“It was kind of set in stone when the team reached out to me,” Snell said on Monday. “They told me how important I was to the team and I felt real welcome here.

“I’m happy being here. The organization supports me and I support them. I think it’s right that I stayed.”
