Rob Perez- "Dennis Schroder Is Worth 100 Million But In Pesos."

Dennis Schroder was probably one of the Lakers' most hyped-up acquisitions this past summer. His offensive skillset is well-known throughout the community, thanks to his stints in Atlanta and Oklahoma City.

But since arriving in L.A., he hasn't quite lived up to expectations, and disappointment reached an all-time low on Wednesday night.

Amid a firestorm of critics on Twitter, Rob Perez took a particularly heavy shot at Schroder, pointing back to a report back in March that the guard is looking for a deal close to $100 million in the offseason.
