Dennis Schroder made an interesting statement regarding the Los Angeles Lakers and their rivals, the Clippers.

The star of the Oklahoma City Thunder said he never wanted to join either the Lakers (2020 NBA champions) or the Clippers.

“Yes, I have received offers. But I never wanted to go to the Lakers, the Clippers or all the names that may have called my agents. In the end, I’m good with the GM (Sam Presti – the OKC General Manager) and that was my decision.

I said that I like the organization here better,” Schroder said during his appearance on the MagentaSport podcast, per Sport 1.

Schroder is under contract with the Thunder for the next season and is set to earn $15.5M. He is expected to be a free agent in 2021.
