The Los Angeles Lakers have theoretically agreed to an agreement with the Oklahoma City Thunder to acquire guard Dennis Schroder in exchange for the No. 28 pick in the upcoming NBA Draft. According to Shams Charania of Athletic.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojrowski, Guard Danny Green has also been the focal point of the trade.
ESPN Teams were told earlier on Sunday that teams were informed that the ban on trades would end on Monday afternoon.
The 27-year-old Schroder is coming off one of the best seasons of his NBA career, with the Thunder having 18.9 points and four assists per game last season. Schroder was also one of the finalists for the sixth Man of the Year award.
Earlier this week, the Thunder promoted assistant coach Mark Denzial as head coach. Denzialt was an assistant coach for the Thunder in the 2019–20 season and previously was the head coach of the Oklahoma City Blue, affiliated with the G League of Oklahoma City, from 2014–19. His promotion likely indicates that the team wants to rebuild this season.
Star point guard Chris Paul also remains the subject of trade conversations, with ESPN reporting on Tuesday night that the Suns are the latest team to have expressed interest in working for a future Hall of Famer.
Oklahoma City went 44-28 last season and has picked up the No. 21 and No. 25 picks in the upcoming 2020 NBA Draft.
