NBA Draft 2013: Chicago Bulls Select Tony Snell 20th Overall

With the 20th overall selection in the 2013 NBA draft, the Chicago Bulls selected New Mexico guard Tony Snell.

Entering the night, one of the areas that the Bulls needed to address was a shooting guard that is capable of creating his own shots.

Snell has that capability. During his Junior campaign with the New Mexico Lobos, Snell shot 39% percent from three-point range while averaging 12.5 points per game.

The Bulls are expected to lose Marco Belinelli and Nate Robinson in the off-season, so the selection of Snell makes complete sense for the team.

Snell is credited for being a good shooter and individual defender and figures to fit well in the Bulls’ system. Snell has also earned a reputation for being an excellent pull-up shooter.
