Veteran point guard Dennis Schröder is on track to finish the 2021/22 season with the Rockets, reports Marc Stein. According to Stein, neither the player nor the team is pushing for a buyout.

Schröder, who signed a one-year deal with the Celtics last summer, was sent from Boston to Houston as the trade deadline in a four-player swap involving Daniel Theis. Given that the Rockets – who are 15-43 and rank last in the Western Conference – are out of the playoff race and immediately waived another veteran involved in that deal (Enes Freedom), there was speculation that a buyout for Schröder could be in the cards.
