College

Having grown up in Upland, California, Snyder spent his college career at University of Nevada, Reno. In 2004, he led the Wolf Pack to its first Sweet 16 in the NCAA tournament. During that trip, they beat No. 2 seed Gonzaga and No. 7 seed Michigan State, but lost in the third round to eventual national runner-up and No. 3 Georgia Tech. In 2005, Nevada made it back to the NCAA past the first round by beating Texas, later losing to No. 1 University of Illinois.

Professional career

Snyder was drafted in the first round (16th overall) of the 2004 NBA Draft by the Utah Jazz. After one season, he was traded to the New Orleans Hornets as part one of the largest trades in NBA history (13 players, 5 teams involved).

In New Orleans, Snyder became a starter midway through his only season. He scored a career-high 28 points against the Minnesota Timberwolves, and averaged nearly 20 minutes per game in 68 contests. After that, he was traded to the Houston Rockets for a 2008 second-round draft pick and cash considerations.[1]

On February 21, 2008, as he was often the last man from the Rockets' bench, Snyder was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves along with a 2010 second-round draft pick and cash considerations for Gerald Green.[2]

During the 2008 off-season, Snyder signed with the Chinese Basketball Association's Zhejiang Horses.[3]

Personal

Snyder married his college sweetheart Haley Dahl, and has two children. Haley is the cousin of Atlanta Falcons offensive line guard Harvey Dahl, who also attended Nevada, and played Wolfpack football there.

Snyder was arrested on March 30, 2009 after he allegedly broke into a Warren County, Ohio home and assaulted a man, sheriff deputies said.[4][5] He was charged with aggravated burglary; he pleaded not guilty at a March 31, 2009 hearing and was held on $500,000 bail[6].
