Following the 2012-13 campaign, the Chicago Bulls were looking to add players to the roster who were capable of stretching opposing defenses.

And who could blame them?

The team was coming off a season in which they were ranked 20th in 3-point shooting percentage.

In order to address this need, the Bulls selected Tony Snell with the 20th pick in the 2013 draft.

On the surface this appeared to be a good move.

After all, Snell averaged 12.5 points per outing in his last season at the University of New Mexico while connecting on 39 percent of shot attempts from beyond the arc.

In addition to that, at 6’7″, Snell could play multiple positions, which would have enabled him to be a solid backup for Luol Deng and Jimmy Butler as both players were coming off a season in which they logged heavy minutes.

Did Snell live up to the billing of being the stretch player the Bulls needed?

Let’s take a look back at his 2013-14 season, including season stats, season highlight/lowlight, memorable quote and my final grade.
