The Boston Celtics have interest in signing free-agent point guard Dennis Schroder, league sources told HoopsHype. The Celtics have the non-taxpayer mid-level exception at their disposal and could agree to a short-term deal. Schroder and the Celtics could agree to a one-year deal or a two-year deal with a player option, league sources said.
The Celtics are looking to add another guard to the roster alongside Marcus Smart and Josh Richardson, who was acquired this offseason. If Schroder signed with Boston, he could potentially be the team’s third scoring option behind Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown with the opportunity to improve his stock and potentially enter the market again next offseason.
Schroder, who turns 28 in September, averaged 15.4 points, 5.8 assists, and 3.5 rebounds while starting all 61 of his games played for the Los Angeles Lakers last season.
