Dennis Schroder's name has actively come up in NBA rumors recently, and there is a good probability the free agent will leave the LA Lakers and sign with a new team. Schroder has already been linked with multiple franchises and according to recent reports, a trio of teams have joined the race to sign him in free agency.
According to Sports Illustrated's Chris Mannix, the Dallas Mavericks, Miami Heat and Chicago Bulls are expected to target Dennis Schroder in free agency. The LA Lakers are expected to explore sign-and-trade scenarios with Dennis Schroder, and one of the three aforementioned teams could land the German international.
Dennis Schroder is expecting a 4-year, $100 million deal, which might make the negotiations difficult. The Lakers had offered a 4-year, $84 million deal, which the former OKC Thunder guard ended up rejecting. Schroder is a talented player who could prove to be a difference-maker for the majority of teams in the NBA, but his financial demands do not match his production from last year.
