Los Angeles Lakers guard Dennis Schroder removed his affiliation with the team on his personal Instagram account. Given that the Lakers’ season is still alive, as they’re facing elimination in Game 6 of their first-round series against the Phoenix Suns on Thursday night, this is very odd timing.
The New York Knicks and Miami Heat will reportedly be in on Schroder this offseason, according to Evan Massey of NBA Analysis Network.
“I’ve been hearing a ton of (Dennis) Schroder to New York talks, but I’m not sold that will end up happening,” a league executive said. “Miami is another team to keep a close eye on. They are going to want an upgrade in the back-court and Schroder seems like a perfect fit if the two sides can agree on price.”
It has been previously reported that Schroder wants to be a primary playmaker in a big market on a lucrative contract.
