Germany’s Dennis Schroeder didn’t start playing basketball until he was 11, and he was considered a borderline NBA prospect until April. Since an 18-point, six-assist performance against the U.S. junior national team at the Nike Hoop Summit, however, Schroeder has rocketed up the food chain. Heading into the NBA Draft on June 27, Schroeder is one of the top point-guard prospects available. Along with Louisville point guard Peyton Siva, Pitt center Steven Adams, Notre Dame forward Jack Cooley, North Carolina State forward Richard Howell and Miami forward Kenny Kadji, he worked out for the Utah Jazz on Friday. "I think it went very well for me," said Schroeder, who doesn’t turn 20 until Sept. 15. "We practiced hard — [all] six guys. We gave everything on the floor." Utah was the sixth team to audition Schroeder. The others were Houston, Milwaukee, Boston, Dallas and Philadelphia. All except Houston select between 11th and 16th in the first round.
