Los Angeles Lakers point guard Dennis Schroder’s time with the team may be done and the Sacramento Kings shooting guard Buddy Hield could take his place. Jake Fischer of Bleacher Report provided some updates on both players:
“The Los Angeles Lakers hope to net returning talent in a sign-and-trade involving the 27-year-old, and they have not ended their search for ways to land Buddy Hield.
“However, it appears the Lakers have not been in extensive contact with Schroder and his representatives, sources told Bleacher Report, and the two sides do not seem to be working in tandem ahead of the new league year beginning at 6 p.m. ET Monday. A sign-and-trade requires agreement from both teams and the free agents involved.”
Buddy Hield averaged 16.6 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 3.6 assists for the Kings last year.
