Dennis Schröder News
Toronto Raptors guard Dennis Schroder has been traded to the Brooklyn Nets, along with Thaddeus Young, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. The Raptors received Spencer Dinwiddie who is expected to be bought out and enter the free agent market shortly thereafter. This move ended up looking like a money-saving deal that freed up even more minutes for Immanuel Quickley, Bruce Brown, and newly acquired Ochai Agbaji. From the Nets' point of view, Schroder gives them a similarly talented distributor and a better shooter to complement Mikal Bridges, Cam Thomas, and Cameron Johnson. Schroder could see an increase in assists since he should at least see a similar amount of minutes.
Toronto Raptors guard Dennis Schroder (knee) is questionable for Wednesday's game versus the Milwaukee Bucks. Right knee soreness has caused Schroder to suddenly find his way on the injury report, with his availability now blurred for Wednesday's tilt. The 30-year-old playmaker has rewarded fantasy managers who took a late-round flier on him following Fred VanVleet's exit, returning mid-round 9-category worth with averages of 15.4 points, 7.7 assists, 1.7 threes, and 1.0 steals this season. If Schroder can't go, Toronto next sees an In-Season Tournament duel with the Boston Celtics on Friday. With Gary Trent Jr. (foot) not expected to play, head coach Darko Rajakovic could be down to Malachi Flynn at the one against the Bucks. Scottie Barnes, an early 2023-24 Most Improved Player of the Year candidate, would likely play some point forward for the Raptors if Schroder is sidelined.
Toronto Raptors point guard Dennis Schroder made it three double-doubles in four games with 24 points and 11 assists in Wednesday's impressive 130-111 win over the Bucks. He added four rebounds to his tally with one steal, shooting 9-for-13 from the field and 2-for-4 from outside. Schroder has always been known as a score-first point guard, but he appears to have reinvented his game in Canada and sits among the league leaders in assists early in the season. He has averaged 9.2 dimes while posting 16.2 points with 50 percent shooting from deep. Schroder will now enter a pair of very juicy matchups against San Antonio and Philadelphia, two teams that have struggled to contain opposing point guards. The Spurs have even allowed the most points in the league per 48 minutes to the position.
Toronto Raptors point guard Dennis Schroder sees himself as a great fit for the team and is excited to link up with head coach Darko Rajakovic, whom he's previously worked with in Oklahoma City. "This is his first year as the head coach. I met him five years ago in OKC, and we became friends," Schroder told Malika Andrews in an appearance on NBA Today. "I liked how he was coaching, myself and the team. He called me right away when he took over, and I definitely said to my agent, 'I want to be there. I want to be a part of that.' I think it's a great fit, to play the national team-type (style). Handle the ball a little bit more, go out and run. ... I think it's a great fit." Schroder is locked into a starter's position in Toronto and looks set for a big year in 2023-24 as he gets to work with a coach who rates him highly.
