According to some American media, German point guard Dennis Schröder, a free agent, could well return to the side of the Los Angeles Lakers.
Dennis Schröder may soon be set on his future. According to two American sports media, generally rather well informed and who have also expressed themselves on this famous subject, no later than this Friday, the German leader, who currently happens to be a free agent, could indeed return on the Los Angeles side, and more specifically within the Lakers franchise. This is what the main interested party is considering more than seriously, with the aim of being part of this workforce for the next NBA season. The German leader was already part of this same Lakers franchise, during the 2020-21 season. According ESPN and The Athletic, which both echo the same deal, Dennis Schröder has plans to sign a new one-year contract for $2.64 million. The main interested party already has a total of nine seasons spent in the prestigious Basketball League. For play-offs played seven times out of nine possible. The last time dating back to the year 2021, in the jersey of the Lakers.
Schröder reached the semi-finals at Eurobasket
That year, the Los Angeles-based franchise didn’t make it past the first round, after falling to the Phoenix Suns. Last year, Dennis Schröder had not agreed to sign a long-term contract, still in favor of this same franchise. The leader had instead opted for the Boston Celtics, with whom he had committed for a period of one year, before finally being sold, last February, to the Houston Rockets. Last year, Schröder averaged 13.5 points, 3.3 rebounds and 4.2 assists before having to end his season prematurely due to a shoulder injury. Until this Friday and the elimination of his selection against Spain (96-91), at the semi-final stage, the German, who celebrated his 29th birthday no later than this Thursday, was engaged in the 2022 edition of Eurobasket with its national team. On average, the player shot 21.6 points and 7.3 assists with his national jersey, in this famous competition.
