Atlanta Hawks historic pick guide No. 3) Tony Snell

Continuing on the defensive theme, Tony Snell was taken by the Chicago Bulls with the 20th pick in the 2013 NBA draft. He has managed to forge a really successful eight-year career since then with the Bulls, the Milwaukee Bucks, the Detroit Pistons, and finally the Hawks.

He has turned himself into a starter by playing solid team defense and shooting the 3-ball with incredible efficiency. He has shot the ball at 39.7 percent from beyond the arc for his career which is a really nice number, but he only takes on average 3.1 attempts per game.

For the Hawks this season Snell was able to shoot the ball at a crazy 56.9 percent from deep which is an insane number. While he only took 2.3 attempts from behind the long line per game, he was not detrimental to the Hawks’ offense, even when he started for an extended period.

Snell has proven to be a solid veteran who can step into any situation and perform. However, he did have a low ceiling when drafted and he has reached that in his career. He has been a tremendous role player for his teams.
