The Los Angeles Lakers made headlines after being in news headlines lately that a recent rescue team brought Dennis Schroder through a business deal with the Oklahoma City Thunder. This has been seen as a tremendous step forward for the Lakers, and apparently, LA superstar Anthony Davis is in complete agreement.
In a recent appearance C. Posted with Haynes Event, Davis stated that he believed Schroder’s arrival in Los Angeles would be beneficial for the Lakers’ title defense next season:
Davis said that LeBron along with Schroder, and the others they (the Lakers) decide to acquire or do, is a great pickup. I think it was a good pick up. “As you said, he can easily win the sixth man of any year. He played a great role with CP (Chris Paul) and Shai (Gilgeous-Alexander). He’s tough, he’s done the ball well this year. Shot through, he can get in the paint, he can find people, and he’s very, very upset. I think it was a good move, a good pick for the Los Angeles Lakers. “
As Davis has expressed, Schroder was one of the best players in the last CBA season coming off the bench. The 27-year-old averaged 18.9 points (on 46.9 percent shooting), 3.6 rebounds and 4.0 assists, while knocking 1.9 tribals per game. The German national averaged 30.8 minutes per contest, and while he did not see the same workload for the Lakers, Schrader is still expected to play an important role for Purple & Gold next term.
