Dennis Schroder wanted a return to the Los Angeles Lakers, and this still could be possible, even after the team added veteran point guard Patrick Beverley.
“It is not yet clear if the Beverley acquisition completely rules out a Schroder return or if [Russell] Westbrook’s potential exit could re-open the door,” NBA insider Marc Stein reported.
Schroder suggested to LeBron James on Instagram that they “run it back” after the two played together in 2020-21.
The challenge could be finding a role for the guard with both Russell Westbrook and Beverley in the rotation. However, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reported the addition of Beverley makes it “more likely that Westbrook will be off the active roster by the start of training camp.”
