Best free agent point guards for Dallas Mavericks to target: 4. Dennis Schroder

Dennis Schroder is another veteran point guard that will be an unrestricted free agent this summer. He spent last season with the Los Angeles Lakers, where some are saying he underperformed. The 27-year-old averaged 15.4 points and 5.8 assists per game on 43.7 percent shooting from the field. The 6’3 guard can get buckets and run an offense.

It was reported a few weeks back, that Dennis Schroder was looking to cash in this summer with a $100-120 million deal. Many in the league doubt that his offers are anything remotely close to those numbers.

A case can be made that Schroder is still improving, and the team acquiring him this summer will be getting his prime years. Most players reach their peak between 26 and 30. This is not always the case as there are plenty of examples that go against the trend. Schroder averaged over 19 points per game during the 2017-2018 season. If he reaches a new peak, his next team could be getting a bargain.

Nonetheless, if the price is right, the Dallas Mavericks should at least explore signing Dennis Schroder in free agency as it could be a gamble that pays off big time in the coming years.
