Managed to perform the rare feat of put up pretty much the same numbers as in years prior while looking much improved in doing it. One stat did spike, though; while his offensive talent is low, Snell’s .603% true shooting percentage is a massive increase on the .478% he shot beforehand. Snell’s usage rate went down to 12.1%, but it was only 13.7% beforehand, so it’s not as though he stopped being a focal point. He never was one. He just stopped looking so lost on the court this year. Impressing defensively, Snell is not the ideal three-and-D wing candidate given his very limited handle for a wing, but he’s not a bad one at all.
Player Plan: Entering restricted free agency and meriting a pay rise above the $2,368,327 he received last year. I would argue that Snell’s performance last year was more of a perfect marriage of player and situation than it was born out of talent, and that even though he is a good three-and-D template wing, he is still pretty replaceable, not to be overspent on. In practice, this would mean the three year, $20-24 million range, not four year and $40 million.
