Dennis Schroeder will watch the NBA Draft from home on TV. The parents of the German PG did not get the visa on time to travel to USA and they decided to stay in Germany. "My family does not have a visa, so I will stay here in Germany" said Schroeder to braunschweiger-zeitung.de. "My brother has a port to watch ESPN and we'll watch the draft on TV" added the PG.

While most foreign teenagers wisely sharpen their skills overseas before venturing to play basketball in America, the 19-year-old Schroeder is ready to plunge at the game's most demanding position. “I made a promise to my dad that one day I want to reach the NBA,” Schroeder said. “Hopefully, it will come true. I work for it every day.” As for when Schroeder will be picked in the June 27 draft, projections range from No. 12 (HoopsHype.com) to No. 29 (CBSSports.com), and both those picks belong to the Thunder. If OKC reserve guard Reggie Jackson were to excel and price himself out of an affordable contract extension, Schroeder could evolve into Russell Westbrook's backup. Oklahoman

The strongest rumors have that promise coming from the Boston Celtics, who own the No. 16 pick. “Nobody has talked to me,” Schroeder told the Racine (Wis.) Journal Times. “I'm just hoping to go in the first round.” Schroeder's agent, Alex Saratsis, also discredited the claim. “I don't know where that came from,” he said. “I don't know anything about that.” Oklahoman

Schroeder is back in Germany after working out for the Mavs, Bucks, Celtics, Jazz and Rockets. Like Larkin, Schroeder's range now appears in the 14-16 window, with the Jazz, Bucks and Celtics all eyeing the point guard. However, sources say the workouts haven't gone particularly well for Schroeder, and he's struggled against the more physical defense at the workouts. "He looked frustrated," one NBA scout said of Schroeder's workout with his team. "His body language wasn't great. He's a very good talent and I wouldn't read too much into the workout, but it didn't really help him." ESPN.com

Listed as 6-foot-1 and a slender — some might say shockingly underweight — 156 pounds, the 19-year-old German worked out along with five other draft prospects Friday morning at the Utah Jazz’s practice facility. The bio issued by the team listed Schroeder as 156 but a check of his stats on several Internet sites indicate he weighs more than likely somewhere around 165. “I don’t even know if that’s true,” Jazz player personnel director Walt Perrin said.
