Despite the fact — or perhaps because of it — that veteran Boston Celtics point guard Dennis Schroder chose to sign with the Celtics on a one-year, prove-it deal for the team’s mini-mid level exception (MLE), there have been plenty of voices among fans and analysts alike pondering whether the German floor general can excel for Boston. Particularly given his likely desire to make back some of the money he ended up missing out on in free agency.
