This guy literally turned down a 4-year, $84 million extension. One of the craziest decisions by a player with career averages of 14.2pts/4.6ast I can remember. Schröder is ok but he's no difference maker.
The Bulls better not be the team who pays him MORE money than that.
Those are his lakers stats. The team is ran through LeBron and Davis. And you got Harrell who can easily demand a bigger role. Now Drummond. Dennis has to work for his points more than ever and mainly off the ball.
In Chicago he'd be a clear 21 ppg type player. We need his scoring alot more than the Lakers who never needed schröder to begin with, just LeBron felt he needed to secure another ring.
But no he's not worth that much. But look at players like Drummond and Otto porter. He's looking at all that. You can't blame him for wanting much more. At the end of the day he will take 20 million a year. He's no fool. Whether it's with the Lakers or a different team. And Chicago really has no choice. Look at it like this. Schröder is technically doing what Lauri does offensively. But tbh it's sad Chicago is destroying there future just to get back in the playoffs. We are going nowhere unless that big time rookie joins this team.
Coby white is going to take 2 or 3 years before he realizes how the game is played. Pat Williams is looking like there's something there. I need to see alot more but he's our only hope. Maybe troy brown jr can find a legit role after valentine and temple are gone. Either way we need a rookie to turn into a star to become a contender. (Period)
It's unfortunate how Lauri's situation has been handled but given the roster construction I would see more benefit to paying a 3&D PG like Schröder 21-23M per year. As it shakes out it is a position of need and he ticks a lot of boxes. I would go as high as 4/92M with a year 4 player option.
Let me make myself perfectly clear. I'm all for Schroeder or Jalen Brunson. Or even Lonzo Ball. I'd hate to see coby white forced into the lineup unless he shows vast improvement. I've been on coby needs time to develop thing for a year in a half. It took for him to miss games and come back to officially see he kills the momentum. But I'd hate to see him 3 years from now on a different team balling out. I do see his future as bright. Just now he's to young and dumb. I say that as constructive criticism.
I'm just getting tired of seeing him take ill advised shots while the game is still in reach and his misses are usually a instant basket for the opposite team. Then he plays lackadaisical defense like he's mad he's not getting his shots.seems more competitive to be a superstar then trying to win the game.
I'd he's our 3rd option sure he can stay and he will still play just at sg and when our other pg's are playing trash. If it wasn't for Thad young this team would be dead last in wins. It's still hard to win even with vucevic. Because we have players who think there already the future until traded.
As for Lauri. I just want him to get a legit go to shot or be aggressive nonstop. He's mad he's lost his starting spot but he's a stand still shooter for the most part. Doesn't create on his own. Has no trickery to his game. All line drive and basic stuff. It's nerve reckoning his game has stayed the same in year 4. A true pg couldn't save him. He needs to learn how to play the game a little more loose and get away from his comfort zone. He has skills but needs easier ways to score.
But the more I see it I feels like Schroeder is already our guy. He just scores so easily and can replace Sato. He'll eat up all our cap space so no Lauri no Sato. Few others will go. I doubt Thad will go anywhere with how he's playing. It's at a point Zach will leave for sure if he's gone
