I wrote a blog a little bit over a week ago about free agents the Celtics should target in NBA free agency. I’ll admit, I struck out on two of the three and will probably strike out on the third. But one guy the Celtics didn’t strike out on was point guard Dennis Schroder. The Celtics and Schroder came to an agreement on a one year, 5.9 million dollar deal.

Now that I’ve had time to digest and think about the signing, here are a few thoughts I have on Dennis Schroder signing with the Celtics.
The Signing is GREAT Money Wise
Let’s think about this for a second. Dennis Schroder had a chance to sign a four year, 84 million dollar extension with the Los Angeles Lakers. He turned it down. Instead, he ends up signing a one year deal for 5.9 million dollars. Now, his agent should be fired for losing out on 78 million. But that’s a story for a different day! What a move by Brad Stevens to use the mid-level exception on Schroder and have a contract that he can easily shed off the books next season. Good move there Brad!
What Does This Mean for Marcus Smart?
With Schroder signing, what will happen with Marcus Smart? Will Smart be starting and Schroder come off the bench? Could Smart even be traded before the season starts? We don’t know. We do know Smart wants to be the alpha dog on this Celtics team. Plus, Dennis Schroder is a guy that could end up being a cancer in the Celtics locker room. Hopefully, Schroder play for a big contract next season and be a facilitator for Tatum and Brown. If not, maybe Smart takes that role. It’s going to be interesting to see how those two mesh together.
Very interesting signing here by Brad Stevens. Maybe Dennis Schroder will be great for the Celtics. It could be that he ends up being a bust. But it’s for one year. It’s cheap money. Plus, you could get a big impact player to help facilitate the floor. It’s going to be interesting once the season actually starts. But for now, welcome to the Boston Celtics, Dennis Schroder!
