Los Angeles Lakers confirmed the trading of guard Dennis Schroder from Oklahoma City Thunder in an exchange for Danny Green and a draft rights to Jaden McDaniels. This was announced to the media by Vice President of Basketball Operations and General Manager Rob Pelinka.
To bring Schroder into the team, the Los Angeles Lakers had to say goodbye to their small forward Danny Green, who was sent to Oklahoma City Thunder alongside the 28th overall pick in the NBA draft for Wednesday, Jaden McDaniels, with jeux de casino en ligne having tabled odds regarding this.
The deals were reported to have been agreed on as early as Sunday before the announcement was made.
The same day, the German guard was announced to be officially traded to the Los Angeles Lakers, he was shown a warm reception as the team’s superstar LeBron James took to his social media page to welcome the new teammate.
Playing for Oklahoma City last campaign, the German guard was able to average 18.9 points, 4.0 assists, and 3.6 rebounds in his 65 games, during which he only made two starts.
He was able to lead the league with his points to score from the bench, ending up as a runner-up in NBA Sixth Man Award Voting after making shooting career highs in three-point percentage (.385) and field goal percentage (.469).
The now-former Thunder guard also has career averages of 14.1 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 4.6 assists in the seven campaigns he spent with Oklahoma City and Atlanta Hawks.
Schroder, who was drafted 17th overall by the Atlanta Hawks in for the 2013 NBA Draft, has appeared in only 46 postseason matches registering only six starts in his career so far while averaging 13.1 points, 2.3 rebounds and 4.0 assists in 23.4 minutes per game and best online casinos didn’t fail to bring odds for those games.
The 27-year-old German guard’s arrival to the Lakers’ team could see a reduction in the workload for LeBron James considering the impressive speed he has in the court, making him a dangerous threat to their opponents.
While the German has scored three-pointers on a good day, he is also good at denying his opponents and still makes good contributions to the defense.
Knowing how dangerous in scoring Schroder is, the Lakers could consider him as the third option for scoring while he can partner up with James for running the vaunted fast breaks.
After parting ways with the 33-year-old Green, a void return for a wing player and the Lakers have been reported to interest in bringing in Wesley Matthews, who is currently a free agent, to fill that void.
