Will the Dallas Mavericks sign Dennis Schroder before the start of training camp?
This is an impossible question to answer. For what it is worth, the Mavericks signed Frank Ntilikina last summer after he helped France finish second in the Olympics. The French Prince struggled during his time in New York, but his role with his national team confirmed that Ntilikina was best suited as a 3-and-D wing to maximize his potential.
Dennis Schroder is a veteran ball-handler with the quickness to get to the rim and finish inside. Spence Dinwiddie proved last season that type of player can thrive playing next to Luka Doncic and leading the second unit in head coach Jason Kidd’s offense. Dinwiddie figures to fill Brunson’s role with Schroder potentially filling Dinwiddie’s.
The question lies with Dennis Schroder. He wanted to be a starter for the Lakers in the 2020-2021 season. Would the 6’3 guard embrace being the Mavericks' sixth man and being the third playmaker behind Doncic and Dinwiddie? Schroder proved he can thrive in that role during the 2020 season as the Thunder surprisingly made the playoffs in their lone season with Chris Paul.
Will the Dallas Mavericks sign Dennis Schroder before training camp? Only time will tell, but he fills a need, and the 6’3 guard is still a free agent. It is a logical fit. That does mean a deal gets done, but it is something to watch closely in the weeks ahead.
