Situation Warriors should monitor: Dennis Schroder in Houston
It seems unlikely for anyone to be convinced that Dennis Schroder would make a good addition for the Golden State Warriors. However, he’s still going to be a premier buyout target over the next few weeks.
Schroder was traded from Boston to Houston and is set to become a free agent in the summer. The veteran guard wouldn’t be an expensive buyout either, owned under $6 million this season.
He’s also behind Kevin Porter Jr. and Jalen Green, both young guards that the Rockets should want getting 30-plus minutes per game. While Schroder is averaging 14.2 points per game, he’s shooting 43.6% from the field. This is his second straight season missing the 44% mark.
Schroder does have a long record of being a successful scorer, dating back to his years in Atlanta. Schroder has 2 seasons in which he topped 45% from the field and 5 in which he scored more than 15 points per game.
For the Warriors, it would be more about finding that second floor general. Whether Schroder could fill that role is a different question entirely. Nonetheless, it’s a situation that should be monitored.
