Dennis Schroder reportedly turned down an $84 million contract offer from the Los Angeles Lakers this past season as he hoped to get a deal in the range of $100-120 million. In the ended, he signed with the Boston Celtics on a one-year deal worth $5.9 million.
According to sports analyst Skip Bayless, the German point guard got ‘LeBroned’ for not deferring to LeBron James on the Lakers roster. “I have some sympathy for Dennis, because he got ‘LeBroned.’ From the start he didn’t defer to LeBron. He played as an equal instead of playing off of LeBron,” he said on UNDISPUTED.
Last season, Schroder averaged 15.4 points, 3.5 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game for the Lakers.
