Dennis Schroder is reportedly being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers for Danny Green and the 28th pick in the NBA Draft.
With perhaps the first official trade of this NBA offseason, the Los Angeles Lakers have decided to bolster their backcourt. This is also the first trade since the trade deadline ended back in February.
With reports indicating Rajon Rondo’s potential departure from the Lakeshow, the Lakers made sure they had a decent point guard to lead them into the 2020-21 NBA season.
However, in doing so, the Lakers have lost their marksman from beyond the arc.
Dennis Schroder to the Lakers; Danny Green to the Thunder
According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Los Angeles Lakers have agreed in principle to trade Danny Green and their 28th pick in this year’s NBA draft to the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Thunder will be sending Dennis Schroder to the Lakers, officially, when the trade moratorium is lifted.
The reigning Sixth Man of the Year was a valuable piece in OKC’s run to the 5th seed in the Western Conference. He averaged 18.9 points and 4 assists in 30 minutes of action. He also shot 38.5% from 3 point land.
LeBron James ‘tampers’ with Dennis Schroder during last season
A video of LeBron James hugging Dennis Schroder during a matchup between the Lakers and OKC last season resurfaced online.
NBA Twitter was seen freaking out over this video as they hilariously claim this is LeBron tampering whilst the season was in play.
