In the 2019-20 season, the real point guard of the Los Angeles team is LeBron James, who is surrounded by two outside gates of Denny green and Bradley. As one of the greatest passers in NBA history, LeBron is clearly qualified for this role. He can average 25.3 points, 7.8 rebounds and 10.2 assists per game for the Lakers, becoming the leagues first assists king in his career.
Obviously LeBron is doing a good job as a ball keeper, but Schroeder wants to share the pressure. Schroeder made it clear in an interview that he wanted to start. However, according to peoples previous prediction, Schroeder should still play as a substitute, partnering with Harrell to become the most powerful pair of reserve scoring combination in the league.
If the Laker coaches really let Schroeder play, then they are not easy to deploy in the lineup. Last season, veteran Rondo was the main control of the Lakers reserve lineup, but he has left the Lakers to sign for the Atlanta Hawks. In addition, the Lakers also fired Quinn cook, who also played point guard. Currently, in the Laker lineup, Caruso can play as a backup point guard. However, Carusos main role is in the defensive side, he is not good at connecting teams.
Schroeders contract is in the final year and his salary this season is $15.5 million. At the end of the day, I just want to focus on this year, Schroeder said of whether to make long-term goals. If everything goes well, I hope to play for a long time. But now Im focusing on this season
