The Milwaukee Bucks appear to be getting their books in order before the 2018-19 season officially ends.
Snell saw his role decrease under new head coach Mike Budenholzer this season after being a starter for most of his first two campaigns with Milwaukee. The 27-year-old's playing time dipped from 28.3 minutes per game from 2016-18 to 17.6 minutes in 2018-19 before he dropped out of the rotation altogether in the playoffs.
Leuer is under contract for $9.5 million next season before hitting free agency next summer. As a deep reserve off Dwane Casey's bench, the 30-year-old averaged 3.8 points and 2.4 rebounds in just under 10 minutes per appearance this past season.
Snell is under contract for $11.4 million for 2019-20 and holds a player option worth $12.2 million in 2020-21. By swapping him for the slightly cheaper Leuer and shedding the cap hold tied to the No. 30 pick, the Bucks have improved their cap situation heading into free agency.
