The Bucks acquired Leuer from the Pistons on Wednesday in exchange for Tony Snell and the No. 30 overall pick in Thursday's draft, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Leuer struggled to stay healthy during his last two seasons in Detroit and effectively fell out of the rotation when he was available in 2018-19, averaging just 3.8 points and 2.4 rebounds in 9.8 minutes per contest. His path to playing time will likely become more difficult as he heads to a deeper Milwaukee squad entering his age-30 campaign. Rather than because of any affinity for Leuer, the Bucks' main motivation in the deal was to free up extra salary-cap space by shedding Snell's onerous contract. The financial flexibility should improve the Bucks' chances of re-signing impending free agents Khris Middleton and Malcolm Brogdon.
