Snell was the 20th overall selection of the Chicago Bulls in the 2013 NBA Draft. He lasted three seasons with his original team before being traded to the Milwaukee Bucks. After another three year stint with the Bucks, he moved on to Detroit for one season before joining the Eastern Conference runners-up Atlanta Hawks.
In 2021 with the Hawks, he achieved something no other NBA player had ever done before. With a minimum of 100 attempts, he started the 50-50-100 club. Meaning, he shot over 50 percent from the field (51.5), from three-point range (56.9) and made 100 percent of his free throws.
NBA fans will see if he can continue that kind of production on a new-look Blazers team that will attempt to take full advantage of Damian Lillard throughout the playoffs.
