Dennis Schroder has yet to select his next NBA team, but fans are under the impression that he just sent out a big hint on the matter.
Schroder has been one of the biggest stars of this year’s Eurobasket. In a tournament that has featured names like Luka Doncic, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Rudy Gobert – he has played up to their level and more.
In particular, Schroder’s 26-point outburst to lead Germany past Antetokounmpo’s Greece squad and advance to the semifinals left a lasting impression. For the tournament he is averaging 20.2 points and 7.2 assists over the course of six games.
Regardless of what happens against Spain on Friday, Schroder has made a statement on the court. Interestingly enough, he may have also made one off the court as well.
Eagle-eyed fans couldn’t help but notice this week that one of Schroder’s kids was wearing a Los Angeles Lakers jersey:

Given that Schroder has history with L.A. and has been linked to them in recent weeks, the rumor mill began to run amok with speculation. And it’s easy to see why. The man has played for five different NBA squads. Why specifically dress your child up in a Lakers jersey under these circumstances?
Schroder’s trials and tribulations in recent years are a matter of public record. Him rejecting an $84 million offer from the Lakers in the way that he did only to then garner no interest on the open market and be relegated to Boston Celtics backup role will go down in league lore.
As things presently stand, two teams appear to be the frontrunners for Schroder’s services. He would be an excellent fit with either one, and both would provide him with ample opportunity to really get his NBA career back on track.

As Eurobasket winds down, Schroder will likely move closer to making his decision on where he wants to play out his 2022-23 campaign.
Who will he ultimately be suiting up for come the start of next season?
An answer should emerge soon enough.
