Lakers reportedly interested in trading for Schroder in flip-flop
Could veteran Boston Celtics point guard Dennis Schroder have the last laugh against the Los Angeles Lakers? By now, even casual fans know the story of how the German guard misread the market for his services and ended up having to strike a deal with the Celtics.
And recently, we learned that Schroder was reportedly open to being a replacement for Russell Westbrook after he arrived in Los Angeles, only for The Lake Show to reject the possibility. Now, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, they are “really looking for solutions” to salvage their season after Westbrook’s tenure was disastrous with few assets to resolve the situation.
Speaking on ‘Get Up’, Woj recounted that LA is after “players like Alec Burks in New York, (or) Dennis Schroder in Boston. Any number of actors, fringe newbies they could be able to DIY the assets to get.
With hours to go before the league’s player trade moratorium arrives this season, we’ll soon see if they pull it off – and are willing to offer Boston what it takes to part ways with Schroder (H/T to Brian Robb of MassLive to find it).
