NBA climate is in the breeze again as pre-season games began last Oct. 1, 2016. As part of the pre-season culture, teams and managements are making sit downs for trade decisions.

Last October 16 2016, Milwaukee Bucks' Michael Carter-Williams and Chicago Bulls' Tony Snell have been the talk of the GM Sitdown. This Oct. 17, 2016, the management made it official to the mass, announcing the trade.

The plug sparked when David Aldridge tweeted about it on his official Twitter account.

As per NBA's official stats for MCW and Snell. Michael Carter-Williams, the 11th pick of 2013 draft, He averaged 11.5 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 5.2 assists in 54 games in NBA Season '15-'16, while Tony Snell averages 5.3 points, 3.1 rebounds and 0.9 assists in the same year.

Though Bulls seem to have the edge stat-wise. Bucks see it as a win-win situation as, ESPN's sources stated that Bucks need someone to fill Khris Middleton's absence due to torn hamstring injury that would take the time to heal.

For Bulls' perspective, MCW could be a component of new chemistry among the whole new Chicago Squad. To start with the newly acquired Michael Beasley from Houston Rockets, Rajon Rondo from Sacramento Kings, Dwyane Wade from the South Beach Miami and the loyalist, Jimmy Butler.

Bucks and Bulls could not see it other than the best of both worlds. As the Milwaukee Bucks are known for its young core, adding Tony Snell could fill the holes while Chicago Bulls are rebuilding a new tower since Derrick Rose's department, MCW might be the 6'6" point guard they need.

This trade could make a huge butterfly effect on the NBA atmosphere, as Eastern teams climb to be competitive with their new key players and chemistry. As NBA's tagline says, "Where amazing happens", a set of whole new teams and rosters would barge in our seats as NBA Regular Season would start on Oct, 25, 2016.
