A media report says the Milwaukee Bucks’ agreement to keep forward Tony Snell puts the team at the N-B-A’s luxury tax threshold. E-S-P-N says the Bucks now have a committed payroll of 118-point-five-million dollars for next season. That’s after Milwaukee agreed to a four year, 46-million dollar package with Snell on Saturday, the first day of the league’s free agent negotiating period. Snell was a restricted free agent. It was reported last week that the Bucks still need to sign draft choices — including first rounder D-J Wilson, so it appears that general manager Jon Horst will need to do some adjusting if he wants to avoid a luxury tax — which the Bucks have done every year since the years that Herb Kohl owned the team.
