NBA Rumors: Lakers Have "Some Interest" In Signing Dennis Schroder If He Gets Bought Out By Rockets

Dennis Schroder has had a solid season with the Boston Celtics this year, toggling between being a 6th man and starting. He has been playing some solid perimeter defense as well as providing supplementary scoring. Dennis Schroder is currently averaging 14.4 PPG, 3.3 RPG, and 4.2 APG this season.

Prior to the trade deadline, Dennis Schroder was traded to the Houston Rockets in exchange for Daniel Theis. It seems possible that the Rockets will buy out Schroder's contract, as he is on a cheap one-year deal.

Jovan Buha of The Athletic has recently revealed that the Los Angeles Lakers have "interest" in bringing Dennis Schroder to the team if he were to get bought out by the Houston Rockets. The article also mentioned that the Lakers "explored the possibility" of acquiring Schroder via trade prior to the trade deadline.

The Lakers explored the possibility of trading for Schröder at the trade deadline, as The Athletic’s Bill Oram reported. While there remains some division internally among the Lakers’ decision-makers regarding Schröder after his uncomfortable departure last summer, there is interest in bringing him back as a backup point guard, according to league sources.

As things stand, the Lakers have the league maximum of 15 players on their roster, meaning they will have to waive or buy out one of their players to make room for a free agent.

It remains to be seen if the Los Angeles Lakers will indeed bring Dennis Schroder back to the team. He could definitely help them on both ends of the floor, especially as a sixth man who can provide a spark off the bench.

This season has not gone as planned for the Los Angeles Lakers, and they are currently a play-in tier team despite having championship aspirations this season. Hopefully, we see them bounce back in the future
