Reports: Lakers, Thunder agree in principle to Dennis Schroder trade

The 27-year-old guard could be on the move soon, according to reports.

Dennis Schroder has been a key piece for Oklahoma City during the last two seasons.

The Los Angeles Lakers are in advanced talks to acquire Oklahoma City Thunder guard Dennis Schroder in a trade, according to reports from Shams Charania of The Athletic and Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

The defending champion Lakers reportedly would send veteran guard Danny Green and the 28th pick in this Wednesday’s NBA Draft (8 ET, ESPN) to the Thunder in exchange for Schroder.

Schroder was key for Oklahoma City during the 2019-20 season. He tallied 18.9 points, 4.0 assists and 3.6 rebounds in 30.8 minutes per night off the bench in his second season with the team.

The 27-year-old guard from Germany played the first five seasons of his career with the Atlanta Hawks, who selected him with the No. 17 pick in the 2013 NBA Draft.

According to Wojnarowski, the trade is “well on course” to be completed on Monday, when the league’s moratorium on transactions reportedly will be lifted. Charania reports the teams have agreed in principle to the deal.
