Veteran guard Dennis Schroder has agreed to join the Boston Celtics.
Schroder announced the news on his Instagram page Tuesday. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the deal is for $5.9 million for one year. According to Marc Stein, then of the New York Times, Schroder turned down a contract extension offer from the Los Angeles Lakers last season that would have paid him roughly $80 million over four years.
After turning down the extension, Schroder became a free agent this offseason. He remained on the market more than a week after the start of free agency on Aug. 2.
