  • Thunder Trade Dennis Schroder To Lakers

    The Lakers are expected to acquire guard Dennis Schroder from the Thunder when the trade moratorium lifts on Monday. Oklahoma City will receive the 28th pick in Wednesday’s draft and guard Danny Green in return.

    Schroder, 27, will make $15.5MM this season in the final year of his contract. He has spent two years in Oklahoma City and averaged 18.9 points and 4.0 assists off the bench last season. In Los Angeles, he’ll become a primary play-maker for the Lakers and could be the team’s third scoring option behind LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

    Green, 33, will make $15.4MM in 2020/21, so the salaries match up for a deal. He signed with the Lakers last summer and averaged 8.0 PPG in 68 games. He has played for the last two NBA champions and will be a free agent again in 2021.
