Dennis Schroder is scheduled to develop into a free agent with the Los Angeles Lakers this offseason and he seems unlikely to signal an extension in the course of the season.
A report earlier than the deadline indicated the Lakers and Schroder have been far aside on extension talks.
“What’s going to occur with Dennis Schroder and the Lakers long-term right here?” mentioned Brian Windhorst on his podcast. “They have been completely providing him for Kyle Lowry final week. And here is the factor: so Schroder grew to become eligible to signal a contract extension in late February, so not less than a month now. From what I perceive, they’ve had contract talks they usually could not conform to an extension. Now, probably the most that Schroder may prolong for below his present contract, as a result of if you prolong a contract, you are below some restrict on how a lot you may get a elevate. The utmost he can signal for is 4 years and $84 million if he completely maxes out what he is in a position to do on an extension. That may be very near the contract Fred VanVleet signed with the Toronto Raptors final offseason.”
The Lakers could have already supplied Schroder the total quantity allowed on an extension.
“What I have been advised and this rumor is fairly broadly on the market so I doubt it’s totally shocking, is that the Lakers did certainly supply him that $84 million over 4 years. Now, that is the place we get in a grey space. Was it totally assured? Was it partially assured? Have been there incentives? Blah, blah, blah. However I consider he was supplied a contract in that realm and he mentioned ‘no’ to that extension. And the Lakers subsequently supplied him in commerce for Kyle Lowry.
“What does this imply for Schroder popping out of this season? There’s not going to be a deep free agent marketplace for level guards. There are going to be quite a lot of groups on the market who have to signal them.”
Marc Stein of the New York Instances additionally reported on Tuesday that Schroder rejected a four-year deal price roughly $80 million.
