Report: Bucks to trade Tony Snell, first-round pick to Pistons for Jon Leuer
From NBA Twitter and media reports
The Milwaukee Bucks are reportedly trading guard Tony Snell and the 30th pick in the 2019 NBA Draft to the Detroit Pistons in exchange for forward Jon Leuer.
So the Pistons will be have the 15th and 30th picks in the draft on Thursday. Bucks saved $4M in salary this year, and won’t have Snell’s $12M in salary on books for 2020-21.

The DET/MIL trade cannot occur until after Milwaukee selects no. 30 for Detroit. The holdup is a result of the Stepien rule- "cannot trade a first in back-to-back years". Milwaukee owes Phoenix a protected first in 2020.
