Schröder’s NBA Career So Far
Dennis Schröder struggled with turnovers in his rookie season, and ended up alternating time between the Hawks and the NBA Development League. In 49 games for the Hawks in that 2013-14 season, Schröder averaged 3.7 points, 1.9 assists, 1.2 turnovers, and 13.1 minutes per game.
Schröder increased his scoring average to 10 points per game in the 2014-15 season, along with 4.1 assists in the 77 games he played in with Atlanta. After recording 13 points, nine assists, and three steals in the 2015 Rising Stars Challenge, Schröder was compared to Tony Parker by ESPN.
Second on the depth chart to Jeff Teague, Schröder continued to come off the bench in the 2015-16 season, and averaged 11 points and 4.4 assists in 20.3 minutes per game. In Game 1 of the Hawks’ second round playoff series against the Cleveland Cavaliers that year, Schröder scored a playoff career-high 27 points in a 104–93 loss.
After Jeff Teague was traded prior to the 2016-17 season, Schröder became the Hawks’ starting point guard. With his minutes per game increased to 31.5, Schröder averaged 17.9 points, 6.3 assists, and 0.9 steals.
The 2017-18 season was the best of Schröder’s career, in terms of scoring. He averaged 19.4 points per game (a career-high), along with 6.2 assists per game.
Schröder was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder before the 2018-19 season, and was positioned as the team’s sixth man, behind star guard Russell Wesstbrook. Schröder found himself in a similar season one year later, although the guard he was positioned behind was Chris Paul. In this 2019-20 season, Schröder led the league in scoring off the bench with 18.9 points per game, along with shooting a career-high 38.5% from three-point range. At season’s end, Schröder finished 2nd place in NBA Sixth Man of the Year voting.
Schröder was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers at the beginning of the 2020-21 season. He started 61 games during the regular season, averaging 15.4 points and 5.8 assists per game and shooting 33.5% on three-pointers. However, Schröder’s numbers dropped in the playoffs to 14.3 points and 2.8 assists per game, and the Lakers were eliminated in six games by the Phoenix Suns in the playoffs.
Schröder played with both the Boston Celtics and the Houston Rockets during the 2021-22 season. Before missing the final quarter of that season due to a shoulder injury, Schröder averaged 13.5 points and 4.6 assists per game.
Dennis Schröder returned to the Los Angeles Lakers during the 2022-23 season. His solid, consistent play helped the Lakers made the 2023 NBA Playoffs — although they lost in the Western Conference Finals to the Denver Nuggets. Schröder averaged 12.6 points per game in that season.
On July 12, 2023, Schröder signed with the Toronto Raptors.
Dennis Schröder has also had a noteworthy National team career with Germany. Schröder led the German national team to the 2023 FIBA Basketball World Cup championship. The team went undefeated, including a defeat over the United States. After the final between Germany and Serbia, Schröder was named FIBA World Cup MVP, after averaging 17.9 points and 6.7 assists per game.
Dennis Schröder 2023-24 Season Forecast
If his fantastic form in the 2023 FIBA Basketball World Cup is any indication, Dennis Schröder seems to have hit his prime, and is looking like an excellent addition to the Toronto Raptors in 2023-24. While it isn’t certain whether Schröder or Scottie Barnes will be the Raptors’ starting point guard, Schröder is sure to make a positive impact in whatever role he ends up playing, considering his knack for making teammates around him better. For that reason, I predict Dennis Schröder will have similar stats that he had last season — although his scoring output will likely increase if he ends up being the starting point guard.
