Bulls Take New Mexico's Snell At No. 20 In Draft

DEERFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- The Chicago Bulls have selected New Mexico's Tony Snell with the 20th pick in the NBA draft, adding help on the perimeter. The Bulls decided to add a wing player rather than a big man and went with a 6-foot-7 guard who is considered a top-notch shooter. Snell converted 39 percent of his 3-pointers while averaging 12.5 points as a junior for the Lobos last season and helps fill a big need on the outside for Chicago. He is considered a solid defender who can guard multiple positions, which had to please coach Tom Thibodeau. The Bulls also held the 49th pick Thursday night. Snell joins a team getting superstar Derrick Rose back and eyeing a return to contention in the Eastern Conference.
