Dennis Schroder is a solid point guard who is has signed with the Boston Celtics on a one-year deal. The Celtics will certainly be a good situation for him, and Schroder playing next to two All-Stars in Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown should keep the Boston Celtics competitive in the east.
The one-year deal Dennis Schroder signed with the Boston Celtics during the course of free agency will allow him to be a free agent again next season. One of the biggest stories about Dennis Schroder during this year's free agency was the fact that he was unable to get a big-money deal, after turning down an $84 million extension from the Los Angeles Lakers. There were also some rumors that suggested that Schroder believed that he was a $100 million player.
Schroder himself has recently addressed the reports that he got an extension offer from the Los Angeles Lakers, and stated that the $84 million offer wasn't even on the table.
Even if Dennis Schroder didn't get the long-term deal he wanted this free agency, he and his family are certainly still more well-off than the majority of people. Schroder's "money isn't everything" quip suggests that he's at peace with his decision to join the Boston Celtics.
It will certainly be interesting to see how this season plays out for Dennis Schroder. Schroder will certainly have the opportunity to play up his value, and if he has a good season with the Celtics, perhaps a team will end up giving him a big long-term lucrative deal. It may not be $84 million a year, but plenty of teams need solid point guards.
Hopefully, Dennis Schroder finds success with the Boston Celtics. They should be able to be a playoff team, and perhaps Schroder will be able to contribute to their season as a supplementary scorer behind Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. He could potentially bounce back from an inconsistent season with the Los Angeles Lakers, and that would do wonders for the team.
