Dennis Schroder ended his stint at the LA Lakers after a disappointing exit in the NBA playoffs. He looked a great pick for them initially, but as the season progressed his performances deteriorated. The German was brought into the team to play a supporting role in initiating the offense. However, he failed to handle the pressure of the postseason.
Dennis Schroder started all the games in the series against Phoenix. He averaged 14.3 PPG and looked short of his potential best.

He was offered a one-year mid-cap level deal for the taxpayer mid-level exception at $5,890,000. The point guard signed that deal and became a Celtics player.
