NBA Rumors: Schroder Closer To An NBA Job After EuroBasket performance

Dennis Schroder, over the past couple of years, has worked himself from an $84M offer from the Los Angeles Lakers, into a mid-level exception type of player. 

However, his performance at this month's EuroBasket for Germany just may be putting him back into the conversation for a few NBA teams. He's one of the top point guards still available on the free agent market, and NBA Insider Marc Stein says he may have played himself into a new contract.

Stein says "there's a rising buzz in league circles about his job prospects", and that Schroder "will almost certainly have a new team by month's end." That would put him in an NBA uniform in time for the early days of training camp.

Schroder continued his impressive EuroBasket run by dropping 26 points and 8 assists in leading Germany to a huge upset in the quarterfinals. 

The 28-year-old averaged 13.5 points and 4.6 assists for Boston and Houston last season. He signed for the mid-level with the Boston Celtics last summer hoping for a $100M deal in free agency. He still won't come anywhere close to that this year (probably still in the mid-level range, in fact), but if Stein's intel is correct, he won't be shut out for much longer. 

Earlier this month, we had a look at Schroder's top 3 potential landing spots.
