HoopsHype Dennis Schroeder rumors

January 5, 2014 Updates

So Schroder, a gifted point guard, waits, understanding that success in the NBA is not instantaneous. “Every time I do an interview, everybody tells me that,” Schroder said of the comparisons to Rondo. “For me, it means a lot because he’s like the best point guard in the NBA and I hope that I’ll be one day like him and be an All-Star and win championships. I think with his long arms and defense and his [ability] to see the open guys, yeah, I compare me a little bit like him, too.” Boston Globe

“Since I’ve been a kid I’ve tried to win every game and try to give everything to lead the team,” Schroder said. “Every time when I step on the court I try to be the best and win against other point guards, try to play them well and tough.” The adjustment to the NBA has been rocky. Coach Mike Budenholzer already has sent Schroder to the Development League for a stint. Schroder needs to cut down on risky plays and turnovers. He needs to gain consistency. “It’s a completely different game than [overseas], in Europe you call a lot of set plays,” he said. “In Germany, I played very fast and I can get used to the game in the NBA. I feel comfortable here. At the beginning of the season I played like 20 minutes a game and then I had two bad games and I was out of the rotation, and now I have to be patient and get my minutes back.” Boston Globe

Schroder has played sparingly since losing his backup point guard role to Shelvin Mack and with the return of Lou Williams. The 20-year-old had not played in seven of the past 10 games, including the final three, before his reassignment. In the three games he had played since Nov. 15, he totaled 37 minutes, 27 of which came in a blowout loss to the Rockets last week. “A big part of development is playing,” coach Mike Budenholzer said. “Where the rotations are right now, his best chance of opportunity to get court time and development is going to play games and minutes in the D-League.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Schroder insisted again Thursday morning that he did not strike Cousins intentionally and was merely fighting through a screen while chasing Isaiah Thomas. He and coach Mike Budenholzer both said they respected the NBA decision's but were going to focus on moving forward. “I have to respect it right now,” Schroder said of the suspension. “I didn’t try to do it (intentionally) but when the NBA decided that, I have to live with that.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Rookie Dennis Schroeder might be getting a call from the NBA offices today after what can only be described as a low blow to Kings center DeMarcus Cousins in Atlanta’s 105-100 victory last night in Sacramento. We have seen this situation before, only in reverse. Remember back on Dec. 11 last year when Cousins was suspended one game for popping Dallas Mavericks guard O.J. Mayo below the belt? “I took a cheap shot to my lower area,” Cousins told reporters from his locker after the game. “They (the refs) just blew it off. I guess because it was me. But as soon as something happens on the other end, because it’s me, they run to the camera.” Cowbell Kingdom
