Free agent point guard Dennis Schroder could potentially return to the Lakers to help add depth to the point guard position.
Schroder, of course, spent the 2020-21 season in LA, before signing with the Celtics last summer. He was traded to the Rockets in February before entering unrestricted free agency.
Per Marc Stein of The Stein Line, Schroder is a “legit consideration” by the Lakers’ front office as a possible signing. The Lakers could have some room, as the likes of Dwight Howard, Carmelo Anthony and perhaps several other veteran free agents are not expected to return. (Though Anthony’s status is very clearly up in the air.)
But as Stein wrote, the potential for a reunion with Schroder largely depends on “how the rest of their roster develops.”
Schroder, 28, is 6-foot-3 and appeared in 14 games with the Rockets to finish the season. He played 49 for the Celtics before that, averaging 14.4 points and 4.2 assists.
He has also spent time with the Thunder and Hawks, and along with the Lakers, is drawing interest from the Jazz and Mavericks, sources told Hoops Wire.
