HoopsHype Dennis Schroeder rumors

Schroeder said he models his game after Rondo’s. Perrin said the body type is similar but he hesitated to take the comparison much further, partly because he feels Schroeder is a better offensive player than Rondo was at the same age. “The only comparison in line with Rondo is body build: long arms, big hands,” he said. “Rondo was not an offensive player except for getting to the basket. He couldn’t shoot the ball. I think Dennis is a better shooter at the same stage.” Standard-Examiner

Heading into the NBA Draft on June 27, Schroeder is one of the top point-guard prospects available. Along with Louisville point guard Peyton Siva, Pitt center Steven Adams, Notre Dame forward Jack Cooley, North Carolina State forward Richard Howell and Miami forward Kenny Kadji, he worked out for the Utah Jazz on Friday. "I think it went very well for me," said Schroeder, who doesn’t turn 20 until Sept. 15. "We practiced hard — [all] six guys. We gave everything on the floor." Salt Lake Tribune

I'm hearing that German point guard Dennis Schroeder struggled in his workouts in Milwaukee and Houston. Schroeder, according to team sources, struggled to keep up with the defensive intensity in workouts. He works out again Friday in Utah. Schroeder rode a dominant performance at the Hoop Summit into the top 30, but if he doesn't start playing better, he could be in for an equally significant decline. ESPN.com

Dennis Schröder laughed and tried to brush it off. When the gifted young point guard from Germany was asked whether he was given a “promise” to be drafted in the first round of the June 27 NBA draft, he grinned and said, “Nobody has talked to me. … I’m just hoping to go in the first round.” Schröder’s agent, Alex Saratsis, tried to squelch the Schröder “promise” as well. “I don’t know where that came from,” Saratsis said. “I don’t know anything about that.” Racine Journal-Times

McKinney said the team is looking seriously at backcourt players and small forwards in the draft. The Bucks have not selected a guard in the first round since grabbing Jennings at No. 10 in 2009. McKinney said Schroeder is hardly a finished product at age 19. "He has a tremendous chance to grow, not only as a player but in stature as well," McKinney said. "Physically he's going to get stronger as he competes with grown men now." Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

Dennis Schroeder wasn't sure what to expect when he brought his game from Germany to the U.S. But so far, so good. The 19-year-old point guard from Braunschweig, Germany, wowed scouts and NBA executives at the Nike Hoop Summit in Portland, Ore., and soon found himself moving up on draft lists. He compares his game to Boston's Rajon Rondo and also is fond of Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul. "I think I played two years now against men, so I think that helped me a lot," Schroeder said of playing in Germany's top league. "This was a dream for sure, but I think hard work pays off. It's a good feeling for me." Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
