The German national team didn't qualify for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, but the team was set to compete in qualifying play in August for EuroBasket 2017. Schroder said he still intends to suit up for Germany in the 2020 Olympics if the team qualifies, but for now, the 22-year-old will turn his attention to getting ready for the upcoming season with the
The Hawks had been entertaining offers for both Teague and Schroder dating back to this past season's trade deadline, but ended up holding on to both point guards in anticipation of a deep postseason run. The team ultimately got bounced by the Cavaliers in a four-game sweep during the second round of the playoffs, and could be looking to reconfigure their roster with Teague now out of town and Al Horford potentially departing as a free agent this summer. While Schroder could have less talent around him next season, the fact that his path to playing time is now unimpeded should result in a healthy surge in his counting stats. Per 36 minutes last season, Schroder averaged an impressive 19.5 points, 7.8 assists, 4.5 rebounds, 1.7 three-pointers and 1.6 steals a game.
Dennis Schroder came off the bench to lead the Atlanta Hawks with 21 points (10-18 FG, 1-3 3Pt) in addition to six assists, three rebounds, two steals and a block in 26 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Cavaliers.
Schroder assumed a larger role due to his success combined with the struggles of Jeff Teague, and it was he who was stymied by LeBron James on a last-minute drive that could have given the Hawks the lead. The German played more minutes than Teague twice in the series en route to averages of 15.3 points and 4.8 assists in just 20 minutes per game, and he could step into a starter's role next season if the club elects to move the latter this offseason.
Dennis Schroder exploded for 27 points (10-20 FG, 2-2 FT, 5-10 3Pt) to go along with 6 assists and three rebounds in just 29 minutes during Monday's Game 1 loss versus Cleveland.
The 22-year-old was in attack mode Monday, and his success, combined with Jeff Teague's struggles, saw him receive a seven-minute playing-time advantage over the latter. Schroder should continue operating as a sixth man for Atlanta, but it appears coach Mike Budenholzer will not be shy about thrusting him into a larger role if necessary.
Dennis Schroder poured in 12 points (5-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and added eight assists and three rebounds over 23 minutes in Thursday's 104-92 series-clinching victory over the Celtics.
The proficient sixth man looked to be free of any issues with the ankle that had bothered him earlier in the series, and received his highest allotment of playing time in the first round. Schroder produced what may have been his best all-around effort of the series, displaying a particular proficiency with his ball distribution on the night. The third-year pro had a reduced role in last year's four-game sweep at the hands of the Cavaliers in the conference finals-- when he averaged only 5.8 points per game over 13.3 minutes-- but could see his role increase in this year's go-around with Cleveland beginning Sunday night.
