Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer is reporting that the Boston Celtics are “engaged in conversations to add free-agent point guard Dennis Schroder” as the team “looks to address its need at point guard,” according to his sources.
The Celtics have largely been quiet on the free agency front, only bringing back former Boston big man Enes Kanter after a stint away from the team for a season with the Portland Trail Blazers on a minimum deal, causing some consternation among a subset of fans. With the team appearing to keep the powder dry in terms of cap space for a major move in the future, it is not clear how such a signing might affect those evident plans, if at all.
HoopsHype’s Michael Scotto reports that the parties “could agree to a one-year deal or a two-year deal with a player option,” per sources.

Schroder would add much-needed ball movement to a team that was among the NBA’s worst in that regard in 2020-21 with an average of 5.8 assists per game last season but is not a great 3-point shot or especially good defender.
Still, if a deal can be reached that is amenable to both parties, Boston would be the better for it so long as it doesn’t significantly impede future moves to return to a contention status.
