Milwaukee and Chicago have agreed to a trade that will send point guard Michael Carter-Williams to the Bulls, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
In return, the Bucks will receive small forward Tony Snell.
The deal is not yet official but could be completed as soon as Monday, the Journal Sentinel reported.
“The Bucks continue to try to shore up the shooting guard position after the loss of Khris Middleton, who had surgery for a torn hamstring and is out at least six months,” the newspaper wrote. “The Bulls wanted a reliable backup for Rajon Rondo.”
Carter-Williams is 6-foot-6 and averaged 11.5 points and 5.2 assists in 54 games last season. He was named NBA Rookie of the Year in 2014, when he played for Philadelphia.
Snell is 6-7 and averaged 5.3 points and 3.1 rebounds in 64 games.
