The top two choices for the staff have been in the league for more than a year or two but rather hiding in the shadows of other great NBA players. This time, Dennis Schroder.
“Dennis Schroder has patiently put up good numbers and solid play in a back-up role, and now his time has come. He has been given the reigns to the Hawks offense with a good cast around him, and is ready to excel. Schroder will be the most improved player of 2017.”
– Sam Casey
“With Teague’s departure, the door is open for the young German point guard. While he is still rough around the edges, Schroder’s stats will go up for sure, even without any improvement to his game, simply because he will play more minutes. If the work on his three-point sho pays off, Schroder is a serious MIP candidate.”
– Marvin J. Hanke
