Report: Boston Celtics Offer Dennis Schroder One-Year Deal

After turning down the Lakers' max extension offer of four years, $84 million, as well as reportedly wanting north of $100 million in free agency, Dennis Schroder has been bereft of any viable suitors. Fast forward to today, and the Celtics appear willing to take a chance on the 27-year-old as they have offered him a one-year deal, worth the taxpayer $5.9 MLE, according to ESPN's Jordan Schultz.

Per the report, Schroder is asking for the full MLE — which is $9.5 million — and wants a second-year player option. At this moment, Boston is unwilling to be hard-capped.
While the Celtics are showing interest in the German native, they are yet to make a true commitment. Boston is reportedly shopping "point guard Kris Dunn and forward Bruno Fernando before concluding conversations with free agent Dennis Schroder," according to Bleacher Report's Jake Fischer.

Schroder averaged 15.4 points, 5.8 assists, and 3.5 rebounds for the Lakers last season.
