It’s common knowledge that Dennis Schroder’s time with the Los Angeles Lakers didn’t go as planned. He struggled to really make an impact in their backcourt and was basically non-existent in the playoffs. While he made the foolish decision of turning down an $84 million deal from the team, he ultimately settled for a one-year, $5.9 million contract with the Boston Celtics this summer. As far as Anthony Davis is concerned though, he’s happy that Schroder is gone and Rajon Rondo is back.
AD was one of the players who didn’t exactly benefit from the German running the point for the Lakers. Via Eric Pincus of Bleacher Report:
Per an NBA source familiar with some of the Lakers’ struggles through the 2020-21 campaign, Davis felt some frustration that he wasn’t getting the kind of looks in the post with Dennis Schroder running the point compared to those he received with Rondo a year earlier.
