Dennis Schroder Done With LA Lakers?


Los Angeles Lakers' point guard Dennis Schroder may be on his way out of L.A., if his Instagram profile is any indication. Schroder has removed the "PG for the Los Angeles Lakers" from his bio and replaced it with, simply, "Athlete".

Rumors have been circulating about Schroder's future with the team, as he becomes an unrestricted free agent at season's end, and there have been rumblings that he's looking for a more high-profile role with a team. 

The 27-year-old point guard averaged 15.4 ppg, 5.8 assists and 3.5 rebounds in his first year with the Lakers. But his place as the third scoring option on a team with LeBron James and Anthony Davis has left Schroder wanting for more. 

Fans have been quick to point out that his playoff performance hasn't exactly proven his point, as he's been held to just 13 ppg, and his assists have been cut in half, to just 2.8 per game.  

After a zero point performance in Game 5 that's left the Lakers trailing 3-2 in their first round series with the Phoenix Suns, it's just possible that tonight's Game 6 could be the final game for Schroder in a Lakers uniform.
