Free agent guard Dennis Schroder is finalizing a one-year, $2.64 million deal with the Los Angeles Lakers, his agent, Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports, told ESPN on Friday.
Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka and new coach Darvin Ham reached out to Russell Westbrook in recent days to tell him that they planned to sign a veteran guard to the team’s 14th roster spot, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Schroder averaged 15.4 points and nearly six assists during his 2020-21 campaign with the Lakers and turned down an extension worth north of $80 million during the season.
