Ranking the Roster 2016: Ta-ta to Teletovic, Hello to Snell

In another Brew Hoop "Ranking the Roster" first, the voters say farewell to the ever-stretchy Mirza Teletovic while also considering how to place newcomer Tony Snell.

With a whopping 44% of the vote, Mirza Teletovic has been dubbed the seventh most valuable Buck!

While you were reading that sentence, Telly shot a 3. That's his game, and he is not shy about it. Over his four-year career, over 60% of Mirza's shots are from deep, and he hits on 37.5% of those attempts. At 6'9", he provides valuable spacing from the forward position, and with a newly-signed contract that pays out $31.5 million over the next three seasons, Teletovic figures to be an important part of the Bucks' supporting cast.

I think this is a good place for Telly to rank on the Bucks roster. His game is very one-dimensional, and while that dimension is exactly what the Bucks need, you're still paying $10+ million for a one-trick pony. Here's to hoping that this particular pony pulls off a ton of tricks.

In this edition of Ranking the Roster, we want to be responsive to the recent trade that sent Michael Carter-Williams to Chicago in exchange for Tony Snell. Snell was picked 20th overall in the 2013 NBA Draft class, and hasn't yet become the high-efficiency 3&D wing that Bulls fans wanted. Now that he's a Buck, where do you rank Snell? Is he about the same as MCW? Should he be way higher? Way lower? Tell us!

(Reminder: we're counting down the most valuable players from a roster-building perspective, not just who is going to be the best player next year. So put on your NBA GM hat and consider all the key factors that go into a player's value: past productivity, future potential, contract, age, personality, etc. So to start, pick the player you think is least valuable -- in other words, if the NBA had an expansion draft, who would be the first Bucks player you'd leave unprotected?)
